Uber rates in Columbus are lower than the national average, but higher than the national average in Columbus for other cities with smaller populations, according to a coalition of more than 20 nonprofit and industry organizations advocating for low-cost rides. Uber rates in Columbus are relatively low—15 to 30 cents per mile when you factor in the cost of fuel—but Uber's status as a satellite service allows it to surge pricing when demand reaches historic highs. Recently, when all the city's Uber and Lyft drivers were away from work for a week, Uber started up on Market Street with "free rides" for four hours on days that the companies aren't available. The service was taken down briefly when the surge pricing was also temporarily taken offline, but resumes automatically once they return.
