There are two ways to get an estimate for a ride.
The first is to use the handy fare estimator on our website. Just click on "Pricing" at the top of the page and pick your metro area, either LA/OC or the San Francisco Bay. From there, you can enter the pickup and dropoff addresses and it will show you the estimated fare for the ride (which may change based on actual traffic conditions). You'll be able to get estimated costs for single family multi-stop rides and carpool rides as well.
The second option is to schedule a ride using either the HopSkipDrive app or website. Once you record all of the information for your ride, you will be shown a summary screen that breaks down all of the details of your ride. You can see an estimate for the ride on this screen as well before you submit.
