Uber trips will get more expensive as the company adds add route-based pricing in 14 American cities
The company has implemented an algorithm to predict what customers are absolutely willing to pay in order to get to a certain destination. The final fare will be calculated and shown to passengers and drivers in advance. However, the bill isn't being broken down so you won't know how much you are paying for the different "ingredients," so to speak.
Route-based pricing will be brought to 14 cities in the US. Drivers based in them will be sent updated service agreements that reflect the changes. As Uber drivers are unhappy about their pay, they might grow increasingly frustrated now that the company charges its customers more but doesn't give drivers a bigger cut.
