Using Uber? Know the rates.

( (

How Uber determines fares: 

Uber chargers are based on a combination of time and distance. If the car is traveling under 11 mph, you will be charged by the minute.

If the car is traveling over 11 mph you'll be charged by the mile. You will also pay a bate rate that varies by location. In Cincinnati it's $1.40.

Base rates go up for Uber XL (larger vehicles) or Uber Select (luxury vehicles.)

Uber raises rates during peak riding times. The higher the demand, the higher the charge. It's called ‘Surge Pricing' and the app will notify users when Ubers are in a surge.
