A Look At Local Uber Fees

Below are some examples of fees you’ll run across in a few major cities and states.


Access for All fee: A flat fee of $0.10 is added to every ride that originates in California, and the money goes into a fund that supports increasing the number of wheelchair-accessible vehicles available for on-demand transportation.

Marketplace fee: According to Uber, this fee is charged for connecting riders and drivers within “certain markets.” It’s already included in the upfront price or fare estimate presented before the ride.


Ground transportation surcharge: Any trip that takes place in the city of Chicago gets a surcharge of $1.13 on UberX or UberXL rides and $0.53 on pool rides.
