In April, we began slowly introducing upfront fares for a variety of Uber options including uberX in cities across the US. To date, hundreds of thousands of riders have experienced upfront fares as part of this rollout. Today, we’re excited to announce this feature is now available for people in Toronto and Ottawa. Upfront fares are calculated using the expected time and distance of the trip and local traffic, as well as how many riders and nearby drivers are using Uber at that moment. And when fares go up due to increased demand, instead of surge lightning bolts and pop-up screens, riders are given the actual fare before they request their ride. There’s no complicated math and no surprises—passengers can just sit back and enjoy the ride.
From 5-11pm this Friday and Saturday, #uberPOOL rides will be 50% less than #uberX. Choose to share your ride and enjoy the savings!
