Lyft Joins Uber In Offering Upfront Fares

The future is here folks! Lyft has joined the likes of Uber in offering upfront fares so you know how much your ride is going to be. Who needs futuristic flying cars we were promised...we now have upfront pricing!

The cutthroat competition between Lyft and Uber sometimes has an upshot: rider-friendly features tend to spread quickly from one service to the other. And that's certainly true today. Lyft is matching Uber's upfront fares by introducing its own in-app fare previews for all passengers, not just Lyft Line as before. Once you plug in your starting point and destination, you'll know just how much it will cost to get there, including taxes, tolls and Prime Time (aka surge pricing).
