How does RideGuru calculate the fares?
RideGuru's fare calculations are based on a proprietary algorithm that takes into account a multitude of considerations.

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.
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.
