NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 14: An Uber car waits for a client in Manhattan a day after it was announced that Uber co-founder Travis Kalanick will take a leave of absence as chief executive on June 14, 2017 in New York City. The move came after former attorney general Eric H. Holder Jr. and his law firm, Covington & Burling, released 13 pages of recommendations compiled as part of an investigation of sexual harassment at the ride-hailing car service.

An Uber customer is grateful for an honest act from his driver.
Lawyer Rogelio Garcia was picked up by Uber driver Ade Adeleye in Houston Monday. When he got out of the car, he left $703 in a money clip in the vehicle.
“I went to every office in my building here, turned it inside out and then I decided my town home maybe I forgot it,” Garcia told KPRC Tuesday.
A woman who got a ride with Adeleye later that day found the cash in the clip and told her driver. The pair counted the money and Adeleye figured out it belonged to Garcia.
Lose $700 plus money clip in UBER this morning. I am running late for my nephew to file for the US representative spot District 29. I locate Uber 7 hrs later. Immigrant from Nigeria (Uber driver) returns my lost money. Who says we need to exclude immigrants? pic.twitter.com/SjcTeRxm6e
I asked him how he found it and he said another female passenger got in his car after me and handed (found $ in back seat))the money to him. They both counted it and he remembered the man with a distinctive cowboy hat.
