On top of the standard fare and toll rates, riders going to the Bicutan and Sucat areas will have to pay an extra Php80, and those going to Alabang, Filinvest, and Susana Heights will have to pay an extra Php100. Uber claims that this surcharge scheme is in response to the increasing interest of riders from southern Metro Manila.

  1. this is basically ‘pa dagdag na lang po, malayo kasi’. without any questions asked. and i’m cool with it.

  2. These charges have been in place for a very long time now. When you go East (Cainta, Taytay, Antipolo) there are corresponding surcharges as well.

    • paranaque kasi is considered metro manila unlike cainta or rizal areas na hindi .

      • I am aware of that, which I realize now makes little to no sense for Uber to charge 80-100 pesos going South when they only charge 60 pesos to go to Cainta. That is on top of the toll fees should they pass through SLEX/Skyway.

    • True. The East surcharge is P60. LTFRB is nitpicking. Why not do something about the extortionist tactics of taxi drivers charging P3k from the airport to Cubao EVEN after reassuring the passenger before boarding that they will use their meter.

  3. My Boyfriend and i always travel and use uber
    we have no complaints
