POSThttps://api.uber.com/v1/guests/trips/estimates

Privileged and Confidential This endpoint design has been confidentially shared with you. It is still under development and is subject to change without notice. Please do not share this document or API endpoint details with anyone who is not authorized to have access. For more information read about scopes.

Use case

Use this endpoint to get an estimated fare for a trip and to identify which products are available between a given trip origin and destination.

If the request is from a third party (3P) app, please add x-uber-organizationuuid header and the Organization UUID as the value or the request will be denied.

Authorization

OAuth 2.0 Bearer token with the guests.trips scope.

Request
Example Request
curl -X POST \
  -H "authorization: Bearer <access_token>" \
  -H 'content-type: application/json' \
  -d '{
       "pickup":{
          "latitude":40.7484,
          "longitude":-73.9857
       },
       "dropoff":{
          "latitude":40.750568,
          "longitude":-73.993519
       }
      }' \
      'https://api.uber.com/v1/guests/trips/estimates'

When using the sandbox environment, the request requires the x-uber-sandbox-runuuid header with the run_id as the value (e.g, -H "x-uber-sandbox-runuuid:<run_id>").

Request body parameters
Field Type Description
pickup.latitude float Latitude of the starting location of the trip (required).
pickup.longitude float Longitude of the starting location of the trip (required).
dropoff.latitude float Latitude of the end location of the trip (required).
dropoff.longitude float Longitude of the end location of the trip (required).
scheduling.pickup_time int The timestamp (in milliseconds) the request is scheduled for (optional).
scheduling.dropoff_time int The timestamp (in milliseconds) the request is scheduled for (optional).
deferred_ride_options.pickup_day string This is used for a flexible trip type. The pickup day (YYYY-MM-DD) the request is set up for (optional).

If both scheduling.pickup_time and deferred_ride_options.pickup_day are blank, the estimate will be for an on-demand ride.

Scheduling requires one of the two fields: pickup_time or dropoff_time. Use scheduling.pickup_time to get an estimate for a trip at that specified time. Use scheduling.dropoff_time to get an estimate for a trip at that specified time based on a predicted pickup_time.

Use deferred_ride_options.pickup_day to get an estimate for a trip where the user picks the ride time on a set day.

reserve_info.enabled bool Specifies whether this product supports Uber Reserve.
reserve_info.scheduled_threshold_minutes int Specifies the number of minutes in advance the trip must be booked to be an Uber Reserve trip.
reserve_info.free_cancellation_threshold_minutes int Specifies the number of minutes before the scheduled pickup time an Uber Reserve trip must be cancelled for no cancellation fee.
reserve_info.valid_until_timestamp int Specifies the timestamp until which if trip is requested, the ride would be considered a reserve ride. After the timestamp, it will be a scheduled ride.
cancellation.min_cancellation_fee float Specifies the minimum cancellation fee to be charged after the grace period ends for rider-initiated cancels.
cancellation.cancellation_grace_period_threshold_sec int Specifies the number of seconds in which the rider is able to cancel, after a driver accepts the trip, without incurring any fee.
estimate_info parameters
Field Type Description

no_cars_available bool True when there are currently no cars available at the pickup location.
pricing_explanation string Explanation of the price. Will only be included when surge pricing is above a certain level.
trip object Object with information about the trip.
trip.distance_unit string Unit of distance used in the distance_estimate. Possible values are mile and km.
trip.distance_estimate float Total is estimated based on haversine distance of the trip, either in mile or km as specified in the distance_unit.

When fare estimates are unavailable

In rare scenarios, it’s possible for fare estimates to be temporarily unavailable.

This results in a 200 response with fares_unavailable set to true and within each product_estimate.estimate_info, the fare and estimate will both be null (as well as the fare_id and trip.duration_estimate).

Hence, developers should handle this case to avoid any potential nil dereferences or unexpected errors.

Rides can still be requested without any of those fields, as the fare_id is not strictly required.

Sometimes, a product will have "no_cars_available": true. This means that this product type is not currently available for the given coordinates and a trip may not be fulfilled.
