Eli Talvy says he accepted a trip from the Bronx to Vero Beach, Florida a week ago after getting clearance from Uber to accept the 18-hour ride.
The couple he met in Riverdale were afraid of contracting COVID on a plane.

However, 12 hours into the trip, Uber called Talvy saying he had exceeded the 10-hour driving limit. They then turned off his application and paid him two hours for the trip.
Talvy says Uber eventually repaid him for the $ 2,500 in losses from the trip.
