Uber has been rolling out an update that replaces the usual way a ride is calculated. Currently as of this post, Uber rides in NYC are calculated as follows:
Uber X (for 4 riders)
Base Fare: $2.55
Per Minute: $0.35
Per Mile: $1.75
Minimum Fare: $8
Uber has been slowly rolling out this new upfront pricing model in Miami, New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, and Seattle with other cities in the US following soon. The price you see when requesting a ride will be the price you pay when your ride ends.
