Frequently asked questions

  • Is the price split equally among riders?

    Yes. The cost of the ride is divided equally among riders who accept the invite to split the fare.

  • Is there an additional cost?

    Yes. When a fare is split, each participating rider is charged a fee of 25 cents. Your receipt will show the total Split Fare fee for all riders.

  • What if a rider doesn’t accept a Split Fare invitation?

    If a rider chooses not to accept Split Fare or doesn't have a valid payment method, you'll be charged for both your portion and theirs.
