Uber and Lyft refund passengers who paid higher fees after bombing

NEW YORK (WABC) -- In the wake of Monday's pipe bomb explosion, two of the major ride-sharing services are refunding customers who were over-charged.

Uber says it suspended "surge pricing" in the area and began refunding anyone who might have paid higher prices to call a ride.

Drivers will be allowed to keep the extra money they earned.

Lyft says it capped its "Prime Time" pricing and also plans to reimburse commuters who were charged more.
