Uber alles ? Uber cheaper than owning a car in San Francisco

For San Francisco, the median Uber fare is only $22. For UberX it’s $17. That means that 50% of UberX trips cost less than $17 (and 50% more) but you can expect to pay around $17 for any given trip.

Uber Alles means above everything else.

The math here is simple:

Uber’s demographic probably tends toward the higher end of the $5,000-$15,000 per year range (depreciation on a highend car, parking, gas, maintenance etc..).

At the high end about 882 uber rides and 292 at the low end.

Uber costs twice as much as a cab ride. But the median Uber ride only costs $24. That means you’re paying $12 more than you would for a cab.

UberX, is usually 30 percent less expensive than taxis.

Uber tends to save 54 minutes versus a cab. They arrive sooner.

Over the next few years, if Uber and other such services do reduce the need for private vehicle ownership, they could help lower the cost of living in urban areas, reduce the environmental toll exacted by privately owned automobiles (like the emissions we spew while cruising for parking), and reallocate space now being wasted on parking lots to more valuable uses, like housing.
