By March 24, 2016February 15th, 20202 Comments


    Today, we’re launching the Uber Fare Estimator Calculator in partnership with The Uber Fare Estimator will allow you to see what an Uber ride will cost the passenger before you go and it’s updated in real time.  Let us know what you think!

    The estimates come directly from the Uber App so they are as accurate as you can get. This is perfect for when you are trying to figure out how much a ride will cost beforehand and you’ll also be able to compare the different levels of Uber service.  Let us know what you think about this calculator and if there are other calculators you’d like to see us create.
