(NY POST) — Uber driver Janis Rogers picked up a fare in Virginia and drove her nearly eight hours and 400 miles to Brooklyn, in what is believed to be the longest Uber ride on record.

Then, the 64-year-old turned right around and drove back to her home in Newport News, Va.

Even more impressive, she did it all without stopping to use the restroom!

“I was wide awake and kept on going. I don’t have a problem with going for a long time,” she laughed.

The fare was a young woman outside a Ben & Jerry’s in Williamsburg, Va., who said she needed to get to Bedford-Stuyvesant to see her boyfriend. It was June 9, at 11:51 a.m.

The bill for the grueling 397-mile, 7-hour-42-minute jaunt: $294.09.

A New York City yellow cab making the same trip in reverse would cost $1,182.
