How are delivery fares calculated?

Delivery fares may be calculated based on the following:

1. FLAT PICKUP FEE
- A flat pickup fee for each pick up at a restaurant (a multiplier may apply if there are multiple pickups at more than one restaurant)
2. FLAT DROPOFF FEE
- A flat dropoff fee for each drop off location
3. PER MILE RATE (NOT APPLICABLE IN ALL CITIES)
- Calculated as the per mile fare multiplied by distance between pickup locations and dropoff points
- This calculation may be based on the most efficient route and not on actual miles travelled
- NOTE: This rate may only apply in select cities. Refer to your city's website on Uber.com for exact rates applicable for your city.
4. PER MINUTE RATE (NOT APPLICABLE IN ALL CITIES)
- Calculated based on the time spent starting from the arrival at the first restaurant to final dropoff
- This calculation may be based on estimated time, not on actual time spent
- NOTE: This rate may only apply in select cities. Refer to your city's website on Uber.com for exact rates applicable for your city.
5. PERCENT REDUCTION ON FARES (NOT APPLICABLE IN ALL CITIES)
- The percent reduction on fares vary depending on the delivery city and mode of delivery (car, bike, or scooter)
- Percent reduction on fares may only apply in select cities. Refer to your city's website on Uber.com to see if this applies.


DELIVERY FARE CALCULATION EXAMPLE:

Let's say you pick up one order to one drop off location. The pickup fee is $2.50, the distance you travelled was 5.2 miles, the per mile rate is $0.20, the dropoff fee is $3.00, and your city's percent reduction on fares is 25%.

($2.50 + ($0.20*5.2 miles) + $3.00) - (25% reduction on fares) = $4.91
