(Tech Times) – Uber, the cab service that has been courting controversy in recent times, has pulled another fast one on passengers on Christmas Eve. The company will now be charging passengers a $2 booking fee in New York.

The service is advertised as being “cheaper than a taxi.” The company, however, said on Dec.24 that customers in New York, who subscribe to the UberT service and book a yellow cab via the smartphone app’s e-hailing feature, will be charged $2 as “booking fee.”

“There is no fee associated with UberT for drivers, however, to cover costs associated with provisioning the platform, riders are subject to a $2 booking fee that is passed through the driver to Uber,” stated an Uber spokeswoman.
