What are Rideshares?

Ridehail companies are similar to traditional taxicabs but instead of hailing a car on the street or calling a dispatch service, ridehail services offer a smartphone application (or “app”) that you can use to call a car with a single push of a button. A nearby car is automatically assigned to you, and, using your phone's GPS location, will find its way to you to pick you up. You can even get an estimate of your wait time before the car arrives.

Once your ride is over, there is no need to hand over cash or use your credit card as most ridehail companies have a built-in payment system within the app. Upon signing up on each ridehail app, you will be asked to input your credit card information, and this credit card on file will be used for payment upon completion of each ride you take.

Depending on the service you choose, your ridehail driver may work for a local livery service, or may simply be a member of the community who has chosen to work as a ridehail driver either full time or on the side.

The convenience of ridehail services is hard to dismiss. There are a wide variety of ridehail services available in many cities, with varying degrees of luxury and a wide range of rate schemes. RideGuru offers you a one of a kind service to compare your local ridehail services so you can make an informed decision before you ride.

How much do taxis and ridehails (such as Uber & Lyft) cost? Which ridehail service is cheapest in your city?

With ridehail and taxi rates for more than 1000 international locations, RideGuru’s fare estimates are known to be the most accurate of any website. Find out why.

How does RideGuru calculate the fares?

RideGuru's fare calculations are based on a proprietary algorithm that takes into account a multitude of considerations. We utilize taxi rates from over 1000 localities spanning the globe as well as ridehail rates from over 10 different worldwide companies. RideGuru incorporates not only the distance and duration of your trip, but also factors such as traffic patterns, driving speeds, urban density, and possible wait times. Our estimates are carefully calibrated based upon actual fares submitted by our staff and our users.

How accurate are RideGuru's fare estimates?

As mentioned above RideGuru's fare calculations take into account a multitude of considerations. Estimates are not based solely on the trip distance and duration like other calculators available on the web.

We only use up-to-date rates on RideGuru and our team constantly monitors all rates for accuracy.

Your actual fare may vary depending on unforeseen factors, such as inclement weather, unusual traffic congestion, and even your driver's driving habits; however, under normal driving conditions, our fares are known to be very accurate.

How are RideGuru's fare estimates more accurate than other sites?

Other websites and calculators use simple calculations based only on the expected distance and duration of a trip. This, unfortunately, does not result in estimates that are accurate or comparable to real world fares. RideGuru's sophisticated algorithm considers additional factors, such as city's traffic patterns and driving speeds, and is carefully calibrated on actual fares submitted by our staff, taxi companies, and our users.

Are there other websites that compare taxi and ridehail fares against each other like RideGuru?

At this point in time RideGuru is the only all-inclusive, side by side, ridehail and taxi fare comparison calculator on the web. Our ability to support all major ridehail companies worldwide, makes RideGuru, truly one of a kind.

Any disclaimers?

Yes. RideGuru is for reference only. The estimates can vary from your actual fare, depending on unforeseen factors, such as inclement weather, unusual traffic congestion, road constructions, and even your driver's driving habits.
