After $1,600 Uber Ride to Gloucester County, Fare to be Paid

Last Edited:

A Gloucester County man who got drunk in West Virginia and mistakenly ordered a $1,600 Uber ride back to New Jersey will be reimbursed by a North Jersey-based food delivery company.

Last week, Kenny Bachman intended to get a ride to the house where he was staying near West Virginia University but instead traveled 300 miles by Uber to his home in Gloucester County.

After hearing the story, the founder of Eat Clean Bro offered to pay the fare as a way to say thank you to Bachman for choosing to not drink and drive and keeping everyone on the roadway safe that night.

Bachman had been accepting donations to help pay for the fare, but will now be using the money he raised to support the non-profit organization, Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
