Which is cheaper Uber,Lyft or a taxi?
The Guru Take
It depends on which city, which day, which service, whether there is surge pricing, etc.
While we all would like to get a clear answer on this, this depends on many factors, such as
The city: Companies charge different rates for different cities. They set the price considering demand, competetition, etc.
The day: The fares can be changed by the companies depending on the market situation and demand.
Service / car type: Different rates are charged for different car type and service you order.
Minute to minute - i.e. Surge pricing: Dpending on the demand, rideshare companies like Lyft and Uber change the rates in real-time. This is called surge pricing and can tent to make these services more expensive on busy times, like rush house and Friday nights. (https://ride.guru/content/newsroom/surge-pricing-made-simple)
