Uber draws ire for surge pricing during TTC mess

Instead of walking or waiting for a shuttle bus during this morning's chaotic commute, many Torontonians turned to UberX in attempt to get to work on time.

Some, however, were miffed when they saw surge prices at three times the normal fare. This tactic shouldn't be surprising considering Uber always raises its prices when demand is high. Nevertheless, conventional cabs looked pretty good this morning.

Here's a roundup of reaction to Uber surge pricing and a generally chaotic commute.
