Tolls and Surcharges
SLEX Toll Fees
All standard Metro Manila toll fees for the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) are to be added to riders’ fares (but paid for upfront and in cash by partner-drivers). For a list of SLEX tolls, please click here.
Surcharge for riders in the South
As we see more riders interested in using Uber in the southern part of the Metro, we want to make sure that Partner-Drivers are able to cover for their costs in a sustainable manner.In line with this, following surcharges are charged to riders on top of fares and existing toll fees if you enter and exit the following toll gates:
Surcharge for riders in the East Expansion Area (outside of Metro Manila)
With the expansion of Uber Manila’s coverage area, we’ve implemented an East Surcharge for trips that begin in Metro Manila and end in Cainta, and certain areas in Taytay, San Mateo, and Antipolo. For more details, click here.

Make More ₱ During Surge
Watch this video to learn about surge and heat maps! (video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4oYant4iY8) from this http://sandiego.ubermovement.com/make-more-during-times-of-high-demand/
During times of high demand, prices can go up – this is called surge pricing. Surge pricing helps increase the number of partner drivers online during times of extreme demand, increasing the chance that there will be cars available when riders need one most.
To do this, we add a surge multiplier. If prices are surging at 1.5X, that means a ₱150 fare would now be a ₱225 fare! Uber’s commission does not change. Surge is most likely to occur during peak hours, big events and poor weather!
How surge looks like
To help you understand which areas are the busiest, the map will glow certain colours based on the level of demand.
Yellow = Moderate Demand
Orange = High Demand
Red = SURGING
The in-app map updates every few minutes so heading to a surging area may not guarantee a surged trip, but it’s a good indication of where there is high demand!
