Uber To Pay $28.5M For Misleading Customers On Safety Practices

Damn, we almost made it through an entire week without more bad Uber news. The company has agreed to cough up $28.5 million to 25 million customers to settle lawsuits claiming the company misled customers about safety practices.

Uber said Thursday that it will pay $28.5 million to settle two lawsuits that said the ride-hailing firm misled customers about its safety procedures and fees. The company told a federal judge in San Francisco that it wants to settle the class-action lawsuits by paying about 25 million riders who made U.S. trips between Jan. 1, 2013, and Jan. 31, 2016.
