An driver asked a young woman if she wanted to be 'friends with benefits' in exchange for free trips 'whenever she wants'.
Adrienne Horrigan recorded the sleazy proposition on her phone during an Uber ride on the last December after she left a friend's house.
The recording appears to show the driver, Sandeep Singh, trying to convince Ms Horrigan to pay the cost of her trip 'in other ways'.
Ms Horrigan told A Current Affair that he was the same driver she had three hours earlier when getting dropped off at her friend's address.
'He kind of made me feel as though, because he had waited apparently, not to my knowledge, but I could then repay him or as he says, pay for my fare in other ways,' she said.
Singh can be heard saying to Ms Horrigan: 'We can be like, friends with benefits, you know.
'I can like drop you off and pick you up anytime whenever you want.'

Sandeep Singh asked Ms Horrigan at least four times if she would engage in sexual favours
A shocked Ms Horrigan responded: 'I don't do that, I don't do that for anyone.'
Singh then asked why she wouldn't take him up on his advances.
'Because I don't do that,' she responded again.
Ms Horrigan said she felt nervous and didn't want to offend Singh, but his requests didn't stop.
'Just once for me please,' Singh continued, before Ms Horrigan again refused.
'You know, like, there's nothing wrong with it,' Singh said in a last ditch attempt to convince Ms Harrigan.
'I just don't do that, that's all,' could be heard saying.
Singh then responded with: 'Ah that's okay, I was just asking.'
Ms Horrigan said the situation set off 'alarm bells' in her head, and made her feel instantly insecure.
'I was really scared, I wasn't certain what he was capable of,' Ms Horrigan said.
Ms Horrigan rejected Sandeep Sing's offer for a 'friends with benefits' relationship, but he continued to ask her several more times before eventually giving up

'I started thinking, should I get out of this car sooner rather than later?
Should I call the police?'

'I don't know to be honest... like I have no words to say, I would just like to say sorry,' he said.

'I will be reviewing whether this partner will continue to have access to the app. We will do our best to not pair you with this driver in the future,' the ride share company told Ms Horrigan.
'It was just as if it was no big deal, as if I left my phone in the back of the car or something,' she said.
Uber confirmed they removed Singh as a driver and cut off his access to the app, but the company failed to tell Ms Horrigan of his dismissal.
Singh now works as a taxi driver, and claims he won't make inappropriate comments to his customers in the future.
