Have you ever wondered what it would be like — and how much money it would cost — to travel more than 300 miles across four states via Uber?
Well, a young man from New Jersey can tell you.
Kenneth Bachman, from Sewell, N.J., was visiting friends late last week near West Virginia University and had been drinking at a fraternity party. Many would argue that he did the responsible thing and ordered an Uber to take him home. The only problem? Home was a five-hour ride away.
No fear! His driver was up to the task — for the right price: a whopping $1,635.93.
“We went to a frat party and then went to the bar. I was getting drinks all night. I probably spent, like, $200 at the bar after already drinking all day,” Bachman told CBS Philly of his experience on Friday. “Basically, I kind of just blacked out. The last thing I remember was being at the bar, and then I just woke up in the Uber next to an older dude telling me I was an hour out from Jersey.”
