ÜberXL has a $3 basis. 85 and then cost 50 cent per minutes; UberBlack has a $7 basis and is 65 cent per minutes; and UberSUV has a $14 basis and a price per minutes of 80 cent.
That' $2. 55 base line and 35 cents/minute, but divided (the least expensive option). From 7-10 a.m. and 17-20 p.m. Monday through Friday, all UberPool trips are $5 below 125th Avenue. They got floats with adverse media for the poor behaviour of the company's founder - and their driver too - but that didn't seem to slow them down.
What is more, they all have GPRS, so you won't have to worry about getting into a belated taxi just to find out that the rider apparently has never been to Brooklyn before. Price: $2. 50 basic fee, then 35 Cent per minutes or $1. 79 per mil. There is a $8 min. for trips (such as overtime) and casual overtime "plus prices" that cost $5.50 at the basis, 50 eurocent per min. and $2.97 per mil.
At Lyft we also have a share taxi facility, known as Lyft Line, which is $2.50 base line and 35 cent per min with a min. of $6 (special for new Lyft drivers: click here to get $50 Lyft balance). Perhaps your closest rival, Lyft, works the same way: just go down to the application, look at a list of local automobiles, ask for a drive, see a driver's name, evaluation and ETA, and then set off.
And Lyft is generously sized with vouchers for first timers and referred friend referrers, so you can get many free trips out of the store if you are playing your tickets correctly. However, in reality, when our testers really needed a lyft - quite early at nights in the Brooklyn area - there were almost never any automobiles and often huge price increases.
To be fair, however, we once learned of a boyfriend of a dreamy Lyft rider who brought her to her goal with free mineral waters and Brezel M&Ms, so the adventure is varied. When you can actually locate a vehicle and are not hunting during a rush hour, this is a sound over-line.
Currently, the airline offers $10 for each journey in Manhattan just South of 110th Street - a relatively good deal - but if your journey arrives below this level, you should foot the lower bill. Drivers wait three free minute and then you are billed $1/min. One additional stop is $5. Best of all, there's no rise in prices - never before.
$10 prices are enough of a bait on their own, but we also found a voucher for a $20 rebate on the first voyage (thanks, Google!). Following two fruitless efforts to conjure a vehicle - there were no participants in the vicinity - we finally found one, but with about 10 minutes to go, including a two-minute extension).
rode, the app's display showed a chart with a symbol indicating where the vehicle is, who drove, and a ticker running down the few tiny seconds until the vehicle shows up; according to the atmosphere, it's a function that's either disappointing - a two-minute extra time? It was a neat vehicle, the pro rider (he said he "really liked" Gett and felt quite indemnified; in this context, he also said that Gett chose not to reduce the driver's indemnity despite the $10 per trip), and the cashing procedure was fast and simple (like About, the application corresponds to everything and debits your plastic card).
Ergo, if you don't care what a slow break can be, or there happens to be a close-by automobile, Gett is a breeze; this $10 transaction alone makes the effort of servicing a worthwhile one. Currently, Juno is in New York Times public beta status, which represents a 35 per cent rebate for new customers on all attractions.
There is also a $8 travel min. and a basic rate of $2. 55, plus travel and hourly fees thereafter. The Juno take a much lower fee than similar service and put more cash in the driver bags (they take 10 per cent, about a third of what other companies do). It also gives the driver the opportunity to hold a small share in the business.
For passengers there is a 24-hour helpline, far away from the help features of most similar applications. Whilst we listened anekdotisch report that there are not enough people on Juno yet, when we tried it on a Saturday evening, there were many vehicles, and our pilot came within a few moments.
Our customer support was highly qualified and effective (and the prices are approximately the same as what we pay for the same distance for other services). At the end of your trip, Juno will also send you an e-mail "from your driver", in which you will find out exactly how much additional cash you have made since you chose Juno instead of e.g. Uber or Lyft, a little bit of a bonus if you hope to make yourself a virtue.
If you are not a carpool fan like Via, Juno provides a top class carpool experience at the same cost as other applications and with the understanding that you will help your rider lead a better life. Rate: $5 (plus 44 cents tax) per trip; $2.50 for each extra one. Please note: You must buy credits in steps of $25 or $50.
Activate automatic recharge so that each times you fall below $10, the credit is recharged for you. When you use up all your credit and make a trip, it'll be $7 plus taxes. But if you have $3 left in credit and make a trip, the $3 will be subtracted and you will only be billed the additional $2 and taxes.
It' now running all over Manhattan below 125th Street, from 6am to 12pm on weekdays, 10am to 12pm on Saturdays and 10am to 9pm on Sundays (8pm and later, and weekends price: $5.95 per trip). Waiting times are about five min. on the average and slightly longer during peak hours.
Once the vehicle arrives in front of you, please allow two moments and then get in touch before the start. It is a gift from heaven for those of us who are living far away from the metro (but still in Manhattan), and it is almost always less expensive than a cheap taxi. However, there may be a long waiting time during the peak hours in the mornings and evenings and it may certainly take longer than the Underground.
But if you travel from Up Town to Down Town after peak hours around 8pm, you're most likely alone in a taxi and $5 is the best price for this journey!
