Fasten Price Increase and App Deeplinks

June 5, 2016

Fasten increased their pricing slightly yesterday from $0.95 to $1.15 per mile, and from $0.11 to $0.15 per minute. This makes them slightly more expensive than Uber and Lyft (where they still operate), but just barely, and they are still the best option overall in my opinion.

You can now click on any result, and we will automatically open the appropriate app, with the origin and destination pre-entered. Only some apps support this, so we will open the appropriate app store when this is not accessible.

Lyft Support Added

June 2, 2016

Lyft is still available outside the city limits, so as of now it will be displayed as an available service when your origin is outside the city limits. Please note - it is unfortunately not possible for me to display surge pricing, so this will not be included as part of your calculated price. I plan to add support for Uber soon as well.

We launched yesterday; thank you for the huge outpouring of support! Here's a few placed we were mentioned:
