I just received an email today that starting on Monday Uber will be increasing their prices for a UberBlack car in New York City.
According to the email, they’ve had the same prices for the last three years, so they thought it was time to raise them.
On Monday, April 7, at 12 AM EDT, the following UberBLACK rates will go into effect:
Our goal is to always connect you with the best quality drivers in NYC. On UberBLACK, you can expect an elevated experience, riding with the highest rated drivers in newer model cars.
NOTE: Pricing for uberX and UberSUV will remain unchanged.
For more info on our rates, visit our city page here. Updated prices will be reflected on Monday, April 7.
I’ve used Uber several times in NYC and it’s a great service. The minimum fare for a Black car is still $15, and the base fee is still $7. However, the price per minute and the price per mile is what will be increasing.
