How SideCar determines price for rides

According to SideCar, this ridesharing company calculates the cost of rides based on:

"The suggested price of each ride is based on the estimated time and distance of the trip. There is a per mile and per minute rate as well as a minimum total price. When a passenger requests the trip, our software estimates the time and distance based on current traffic conditions and calculates the suggested payment" (SideCar, 2013).
