WRIGLEYVILLE — Uber and Lyft are a little more expensive Thursday morning.

The ride-hailing services had surge pricing in the morning, with Uber charging 1.5 times as much as it normally does, and Lyft's prices doubling as of 6:45 a.m.

Surge pricing goes into effect when demand for the service is high — like, y'know, the morning after thousands of people party until dawn in Wrigleyville because the Cubs WON THE WORLD SERIES.
