More bad news for Uber: Justin Verlander is tired of its fickle rates.
Among several forms of backlash against the car-share taxi company are growing criticisms of its sudden and dramatic rates increases that can take the standard rate and increase it by several multipliers -- three, four, five times the normal rate, and sometimes more.
Those charges make Uber far more expensive than a regular taxi service and other competing companies, including Lyft.
So Verlander is taking his business elsewhere.
You know it's bad when a guy who signed a $200 million contract is fed up with overpaying.
