Uber Announces $10 Flat Rate in Manhattan
Uber announced a flat rate charge of $10 for all trips within Manhattan and south of 96th Street. The discounted rate applies to UberPool rides, the company’s ride-sharing service, even if the passenger does not end up sharing a ride with someone else.
The offer is in effect for a limited time although Uber did not specify when the promotion will end. Uber says its goal with UberPool is to “take 1 million cars off the road in New York City” and relieve congestion.
Uber’s pricing in New York came as the company implemented surge pricing in London during a massive strike by London Underground workers. The company is charging as much as three times the normal fare for rides in the city.
