Uber price estimator

Sample rider prices are estimates only and do not reflect variations due to discounts, traffic delays, or other factors. Flat rates and minimum fees may apply. Actual prices may vary.

How prices are calculated

In most cities, your cost is calculated up front, before you confirm your ride. Here are some fees and factors that can affect your price:

Base rate

The base rate is determined by the time and distance of a trip.

Booking fee

In your city a flat fee might be added to each trip and helps support operational, regulatory, and safety costs.

Busy times and areas

When there are more riders than available drivers, prices temporarily increase until supply and demand are rebalanced.
