Supplementary notes

*Each average fare is weighted to take into account the number of uberX rides undertaken in that city to generate a weighted average.

To compare the average price of a taxi and uberX fare, the fares for uberX rides undertaken in August 2015 were re-calculated with the taxi fare structure in each city. As all uberX rides are booked and paid for through the uberX app, the uberX fares include a booking fee if applicable and the relevant credit card surcharge for each city.
