What will this ride cost me?
Have you ever had a rider get in your car after requesting a ride on Uber or Lyft and then ask; “What will this ride cost me?”.
Occasionally I have been asked this question. Maybe you have also. Or sometimes when in a conversation someone will ask about a future ride to an airport, they pose the question; “what will this ride cost me?”. I usually hesitate to answer since I’m not quite sure of the cost. I could “pluck from the air” an answer that I assumed would be within the ballpark of the cost.
But now, there is an answer for the question, “What will this ride cost me?”.
The answer is right on your smartphone on the internet.
This will provide not only estimated cost for Uber, Lyft, and Taxi and other rideshare companies. It gets even better since it also shows not only the cost for the rider but the amount that the ride share driver will be paid! Better, better still, it is FREE!
It is; www.rideguru.com
Here is a screenshot from rideguru.com of a trip from Lancaster, PA to the BWI Airport.
www.rideguru will give you a very good idea of what you can answer someone when they ask; “What will this ride cost me?”.
You also have a good idea of what money you can expect to earn on this trip. I think this will be a great help in our ridesharing business. When we know what we know it gives us a greater satisfaction in our driving for Uber, Lyft or some other rideshare company. To me, this is can be a real help in my business. I’m sure it will be in your business as well.
Tell me what you think.
