Plan your next trip with the price estimator. Know before you go, so there’s no maths and no surprises.
How prices are estimated
In most cities, your cost is calculated up front, before you confirm the trip. In others, you will see an estimated fare range. Here are some fees and factors that can affect your price:
The base rate is determined by the time and distance of a trip.
In your city, a flat fee might be added to each trip. It helps support operational, regulatory and safety costs.
Busy times and areas
When there are more riders than available drivers, prices may temporarily increase until the marketplace is rebalanced.
