    Default Uber/Lyft from FLL?

    Has anyone used Uber or Lyft recently to get from Ft. Lauderdale airport to Miami Beach? Just curious how your experiences, if any, have been? I appreciate any feedback.

    Not very recently, but in November I went from Fort Lauderdale Airport to Miami Beach with Uber.
    No problems, same service as always. Paid a little more than when I drove there when I left.

    How much was it? And do the drivers get any hassle when they come to pick you up?

    I take it both Lyft and Uber are available for use at Fort Lauderdale airport? I know there are conflicting articles on this, but if any south Florida residents have more info on this it would be greatly appreciated. As Matt mentioned, the amounts anyone has paid or the hassle they received, if any, would be helpful info. Thanks!

    No hassle.
    $42.84 to go from Fort Lauderdale to South Beach in November
    $36.67 to go from South Beach to Fort Lauderdale in June.

    A client of mine said UberPool is even cheaper, even if they don't pick any one up.

    He got to the airport from Sobe for like $12..not sure if it was MIA or FLL but I'll ask him and update.

    I haven't done Uber Pool but I dunno, seems like a step above SuperShuttle.

    It is about 30% cheaper, but not available everywhere.
    I don't know if UberPool is available in Fort Lauderdale but it is available in most of Miami.

    I always UberPool now and have never picked anyone up but always gotten the discount.
    I drove from 15th Bay Road to around 9th next to Biscayne Boulevard for only $7.

    When you factor in what parking costs it doesn't make sense to have a car as I do not need to drive much or very far.

    UberPool is great and it will be for the drivers as well when it finally starts working. Suddenly they will have 2-3 people paying for the same trip (but only getting a 30% discount). So in the end the driver will make more money and the user will get the ride cheaper.

    Just want to report back that it has gotten even cheaper compared to the prices I posted previously.

    I paid $30 dollars to go from South Beach to Fort Lauderdale Airport a few weeks ago (exact same route as previously).
    Had I choosen Uber pool the price would only have been $25.

    Also managed to go from American Airlines Arena to 15th and Bay Road for the staggering price of $3.87 with UberPool (ridiculous).
