Frequently asked questions
Can the upfront price change?
Rarely under the 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).
Options vary based on your city and region.
