Three Ways to Find Out How Much Your Taxi Race Will Cost

Skydiving, swimming with sharks, climbing a volcano … no extreme sport compares in adrenaline to taking a taxi in big cities with no idea how much it will cost. It's an adventure that would leave any of the Indiana Jones slippers.

But there are already apps that soothe the weakest hearts and let you know how much we'll spend on a race of the kind, making it easier for us to take a taxi or not. Although it is an estimated value after all factors such as traffic and the driver's bad mood can influence with these apps we can at least protect ourselves from those shortcuts, if you understand me. Anyway, let's go to them!


This app calculates taxi rides in several Brazilian capitals, such as So Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Porto Alegre, Vitria, Belm, as well as other large cities. And its use is quite easy and intuitive.

Last New Year's Eve, Uber got into a damn polemic because its Dynamic Rate algorithm that determines the price of the race based on supply and demand was charging exorbitant amounts to anyone who wanted to use the service (to be clear: the user was warned of this). And many ended up using it without first estimating how much the trip would cost. The surprise in the end was very unpleasant.

And worse than the feature Rate Estimation It is very visible in the app interface. It appears just below the map and becomes available as soon as you enter your home location. Click the feature button, enter your destination and the race value will appear in bold letters. Simple, isn't it?
