Uber has rolled out a new feature for UberX rides from 31 August.
Start enjoying upfront fares when you request a uberX rides! Simply enter your destination and get the actual trip fare before you request a ride, just like you already do with uberPOOL.
This way, you’ll know your fare before you go; letting you decide what’s best for you and your budget.
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.
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.
With upfront prices, you cannot book a car without approving the cost beforehand. Do take note that an upfront price may not be honoured if you make significant changes to your trip route. In these cases, it’ll fallback to time and distance rates.
