Technical glitch at Uber overpays drivers at Dulles Airport

A technical issue that went on for three months caused the transport company Uber to pay it's drivers an additional $4 for every trip starting and ending at Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia.

“We recently discovered a technical issue that impacted trips to and from Dulles International Airport (IAD) from Saturday, May 5 through Friday, July 27,” the company said in an email to drivers on Monday. “During this time, driver-partners received an additional $4 for every trip starting or ending at IAD. This was an oversight on our end, but the additional payments are yours to keep. No further action is required on your part.

“The issue has been resolved and moving forward you will no longer receive the additional $4 payment."
