Uber Ride Cost Rs 3000 For 50 km
Shravankumar Suvarna is a Mumbai resident who booked a rider to his home from around 50 km away.

This is outrageous that people have to pay that much amount for such small distances. But it could be argued that these days, the Mumbai rains play a huge role in these fares. Additionally, the peak hour surge prices also apply to the fare taking the number to such high levels.
