I’m a big fan of TaxiFareFinder’s RideGuru, which tells you how much taxis and rideshares cost wherever you’re in need of a ride so you can compare. For example, the other day I needed to get my dad a ride from Manhattan Beach to San Pedro and a taxi was $65 for the 25-minute ride, while SideCar was only $21. I ended up getting him an uberX since it only cost $25 and I had a $20 credit for referring a friend (if you’ve never taken Uber or uberX before, you can get a $20 off your first ride by using the promo code “uberJohnnyJet”—and I will get $20 off my next ride).
What’s really great about RideGuru is that it gives you estimates of your taxi fare anywhere, anytime, in more than 1,000 international locations. And it’s capable of calculating potential fares for various rideshare services including local taxis, Uber, Lyft, and others available in the area. Just enter your pickup and dropoff locations, and you’re good to go. And if you don’t know the address, that’s okay as RideGuru supports town/city names, landmark or business names, zip code, and even latitude and longitude.
