Uber and Lyft are two of the most popular ride-sharing services in the world, with Uber being the largest company in that sector. You should be able to find a nearby driver on their app at any time of day or night. You can have them pick you up and bring you where ever you need to go, without having to worry about parking or traffic.
A new breed of taxi-alternative services that offers a ride-sharing service such as Lyft or Uber has become very popular over the past few years. They have taken the world by storm and quickly became one of the most popular ways to get around a city, disrupting an industry that has been around for centuries. The low cost, convenience, and potential for adventure make them a preferred method of transportation for locals and visitors alike.
The cost of fares is always based on the distance and duration of the booking. And you can always estimate the cost of your hire by checking out the app before hiring a driver.
Please note that by adding an extra stop to your itinerary, you may incur an additional fee. Applicable tolls and surcharges may be also added to your fare, and if you’re traveling to the airport or port, an additional surcharge ($2-$5 depending on location) may be applied. In addition, during peak periods of demand such as major events, rates increase.
Both companies also offer a variety of options for the vehicle that will be picking you up to ensure that you receive the precise service that best suits your needs.
