Uber from Ottawa Airport to Upstate NY


New Member
I was wondering if it seemed tenable to get an Uber from the airport to the Potsdam area of New York. It's about an 80 minute drive and there are literally no options for transit. Any idea?

The issue is that the Uber rider would not get paid for his drive back to Ottawa, so it is likely that you would not get any riders willing to do so.

I on the other hand may consider it if 75% -100% of the fare trip to your destination was given to me as a cash tip in addition to the uber fare.

In other words, are you willing to pay $1.60 / km + $0.36 / min ?

I would not cross the border with an Uber passenger. No idea what they're carrying on their person and I'm not trying to get arrested by CBP.
