Uber Cuts Some New York City Fares By 15%

I was going to make a joke about paying 15% less to have a gun pulled on you but, since this is the only positive Uber news we've seen all week, I'll cut them some slack. wink

The cuts, which apply to the UberX and XL services, are Uber’s attempt to increase ridership, while undercutting competition from Lyft and city cab services. Under the plan, UberX base fares will go from $3 to $2.55, and the minimum fare for the service will drop from $8 to $7.
