The iCarpool app uses a share-the-expense carpool model and charges a flat fee of $0.26 per mile that you travel. There’s no surge pricing and the fee doesn’t change because of peak traffic or time taken. A trip using iCarpool is probably cheaper than your morning latte.
Our map provider tells us the distance between your pickup location and your drop-off location. The Per Mile Fee is $0.26. We multiply the distance with $0.26 (Per Mile Fee) to calculate the amount and round the amount to the nearest cent. Say for example, if the distance between your pickup location and drop-off location is 10 miles, your account will be charged $2.60. There is a minimum fee of $1.50 which is used for trips up to 5 miles. The table below shows the fee for trips up to 15 miles. Longer trips will be charged appropriately using the same calculation.
