200. Philidelphia to Newark airport

About $150 for a shared ride. Reality is Lyft & Uber are deeply in the red (Lyft’s S-1 filing showed ~$1B in losses in 2018). Unless they mine and sell our data like FB or change their revenue model, ride prices will continue to rise.

I think Uber’s endgame is to automate the drivers and make their money back there

$136 union square area to jfk Unfortunately I pay $90 pretty regular between Manhattan and airports. Lyft raised rates about 3 weeks ago and it’s noticeable

$350 for a 5 mile drive in Seattle on Halloween in the very early days of Uber’s surge pricing. This was right when they started doing it. I was irate.

450 from midtown to JFK in rain, thus surge pricing...and I had to wait 30 minutes for the car. Now I only do car services.

these NY-NJ rates are insane! ACN people call CWT we still have contracts with several local car services and they are about 25/50% lower rates

Maybe $125 to get between Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

LGA to LI is regularly over $200

$340 to LGA from midtown

Traffic, I didn’t know it was going to end up taking us 3.5 hrs

$200 for an xl on nye

£200 for central London to Hursley because the Southwest trains weren’t running. Actually thought it was a bit of a bargain.

I took an Uber from DC to NYC once, around $500
