While the holiday season is upon us we will be looking to use the ride share more often to/from airports. Most U.S. cities have both Uber and Lyft so it would be wise to compare the prices before requesting one of them.
Of recent I have seen prices vary by about 15-20% for most of the rides with Lyft being cheaper than Uber for most ride types. Below is an example comparison of ride from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to San Jose International (SJC).
As you can see from above all the different ride types is cheaper with Lyft compared to Uber. Since this fare if for one market it could be possible that other markets may sway towards Uber in price.
Also do remember if you have "commuter benefits" card you can use a Lyft "shared" or Uber "pool" ride and make the payment with your commuter benefits card as per IRS allowance. You can also potentially purchase Uber gift cards at discounts from grocery stores etc, or purchase discounted Lyft pass at Costco. So, enjoy your upcoming vacations while avoiding overpaying for your Uber/Lyft rides.
