How Much Does An Uber / Lyft App Cost To Develop?

Developing rock solid and reliable apps to service clients is not trivial, there is a lot of work involved in design and planning and evaluating the business case. Uber and Lyft might look simple enough for the end user but they have both spent millions of dollars in development to bring these applications to market and to maintain them. A team of developers work full time maintaining and improving their technology. To build a first release candidate you would expect to invest-many 10’s of thousands of dollars and budget for a significant ongoing maintenance, security and innovation. 

Rideshare Development Technology Choices

For a lot of the development work we do our first choice of technology is native iOS and Android using Amazon to host the web services, more often than not using PHP / MySQL for the backend database and admin side of the project. We also develop using Flutter and React native if the circumstances make sense, cross platform development is sometimes the best option.
