Know before you go
You know how much your airline ticket costs before you take off, so why should your ride be any different? Upfront pricing gives you the information you need to choose the ride that best meets your needs and budget.
There’s no complicated math and no surprises—so you can sit back and enjoy the ride.
Why upfront pricing matters
Easier, more informed decisions
Because you no longer have to guess at prices, you can avoid surprises, even when it’s surging, and make better choices about which ride is right for your needs.
Compare your ride options
UberX? UberPool? By seeing the upfront price, you can compare prices and pick the option that best fits your budget and schedule.
Trips change on your terms
The upfront price may change if you add stops, updates your destination, or the route changes significantly. When this happens, your final price is calculated based on the actual time and distance of the trip.
Frequently asked questions
Can the upfront price change?
Rarely under the following conditions:
- The destination changes mid-trip.
- Extra stops are added.
- There are unanticipated delays and route changes above a certain threshold of time and distance (varies by city).
How do you determine the upfront fare?
We consider a variety of factors that typically affect a fare, including surge, traffic, and tolls. We’re able to use past data to estimate the likely cost.
Can a delay or traffic affect my upfront fare?
No. Upfront pricing and navigation take traffic and other patterns into account (based on millions of past completed trips).
