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.
The analysis in this video is based on prices collected in October of 2014. The prices in some cities may have changed since this information was collected.
