College World Series faces ride-share boycott

OMAHA, Neb. - Some Uber and Lyft drivers in the area say emergency declarations are costing them money and they are threatening to boycott the College world Series.

"Point blank, they're not going to drive for the College World Series,” said Uber and Lyft driver Andy Nekuda.

Normally drivers can surge prices during high-demand events, like the Berkshire-Hathaway shareholder's event or the coming College World Series, but Nebraska State Legislature prevents that from happening during disaster declarations.

News 6 reports some drivers are claiming losses of thousands of dollars.

Other drivers for the two transportation apps say they might drive during the College World Series, but they won't be going to TD Ameritrade Park because it's not worth the money.
