Uber Agrees to Pay Penalties After Overcharging Disabled People

The Justice Department said it settled a case with Uber Technologies Inc. that alleged the ride-hailing company wrongfully charged wait-time fees to passengers with physical disabilities.

Under the settlement, Uber will “offer several million dollars in compensation” to more than 65,000 users who, because of their disability, needed more time to enter a car and were charged a waiting fee, the Justice Department said on Monday.
