UberX More Expensive than UberBlack?!
On a recent trip to LaGuardia airport, I decided to request an Uber and noticed that there was surge pricing from Manhattan to LaGuardia airport. However what was interesting was that it appears only UberX was surging, and UberBlack was the regular price, meaning that an UberBlack ride was actually $9 cheaper than UberX.
