Uber suspended surge pricing in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Brooklyn on Tuesday after irate New Yorkers shared screenshots showing sky-high rideshare prices following a horrific subway attack that injured at least 16 people.
Lyft, meanwhile, was also accused of upping prices following the shocking attack but did not immediately say how it planned to respond.
Shortly after The Post asked Uber for a comment, spokeswoman Freddi Goldstein said the company had suspended surge pricing in the area.
“Following the incident, Uber disabled surge pricing in the vicinity and capped pricing citywide,” Goldstein told The Post. “If anyone on our platform experienced unintended charges during this emergency, we will work to get them refunded.”
“Our hearts go out to the victims of this morning’s terrible shooting in Sunset Park,” she added. “As always, Uber strives to be a resource for New Yorkers aiming to get around New York City.”
