We did the math: Is Uber really cheaper than a taxi?

Uber cars offer a better price in many cities, but they don’t always charge the same rate. In times of high demand Uber initiates surge pricing – you are charged the normal fare times a surge multiplier. We figured out the break-even point for each city. This is the level of surge pricing when the Uber car becomes more expensive than a taxi. Produced by Sara Silverstein (BUSINESS INSIDER)
