This ought to get interesting very quickly.
I just got an email from Uber today touting the fact that their UberX low-emissions and mid-range vehicles are slashing rates and are now cheaper than cabs by 10%.
So that means average fare from the airport is about $50, tip included.
But I think it might be the wording in their email. When I cross-referenced with regulated cab rates, they're actually exactly the same. But still, that means you could order a car for the same price as a cab.
So base fare: $3.50
Each Additional mile: $2.75
$0.55 for each minute waiting
But no $2 airport surcharge
I guess you could still claim it's cheaper than cabs because the tip is included. Even with the Uber App, if you order a regular cab, they add a 20% gratuity.
Interesting development, regardless.
