Uber rides between Sydney's CBD and the airport will no longer be capped at a flat rate as of Monday 13 April, while charges for Uber Black, Lux and SUV services will also rise slightly.
The chauffeur-drive service has previously worked to a fixed $65 rate for trips between the CBD and Sydney Airport's domestic terminals, and $75 for the slightly longer run to the international terminal.
Uber passengers will now be billed according to the full trip comprising of a base fare, minimum fare plus per-kilometre and per-minute charges.
The Uber wesbite estimates that a ride from Bridge Street in the Sydney CBD to Sydney Airport's domestic Qantas or Virgin Australia terminals will now cost as much as $73 if you call an Uber Black town car, or up to $96 in an Uber Lux or Uber SUV vehicle.
A trip to the T1 international terminal comes in only slightly higher, ranging from $75 to $97.
The per-kilometre charges for Uber Black will also rise from $2.40/km to $2.90/km from 13 April, and from $3.15/km to $4.50/km for Uber Lux and Uber SUV.
Lux and SUV rides will also see an increase in the base fare from $19 to $20, while the the minimum fare will bump up from $25 to $30.
"With these changes expect to see higher vehicle standards and more cars on the road when you need them most" Uber says in regard to the higher charges.
