Uber price estimator

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

How prices are estimated

In most cities, your cost is calculated up front, before you confirm your ride. 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.

When there are more riders than available drivers, prices may temporarily increase until the marketplace is rebalanced.
