Uber pricing model
Uber pricing model utilizes these 4 components when calculating a fare:
- Base fare - A flat fee charged at the beginning of the ride
- Cost per minute - How much you pay for each minute while on the ride
- Cost per mile(or km) - How much you pay for each mile(or km) of the ride
- Booking Fee (Previously known as the 'Safe Rides Fee') - A flat fee to 'cover operational costs' (Not included for UberBlack and UberSUV)
Here's how Uber calculates your fare
Your Ride Fare = Base Fare + (Cost per minute * time in ride) + (Cost per mile(or km) * ride distance) + Booking Fee
Uber prices depend on the city and the Uber service you use
The base fare, cost per minute, and cost per mile (or km) vary depending on:
- The city you're in.
- Uber service that you choose. Rates are different for UberX, XL, UberSelect, UberBlack, and SUV.
For example, compare Uber rates New York
and Uber rates London
. Or check Uber rates by country & city
Uber minimum fare: You won't pay less than the minimum
Uber sets a minimum fare for each service to help adequately compensate drivers for short trips. If the ride's calculated sum is lower than the minimum fare, you will still be charged the minimum fare.
