A friend was asked to give someone a ride from Lakewood to Baltimore. And was asked how much she charges. This would be the first time. Is there a going rate / what's appropriate in this situation?

The bus from baltimore to New York charged $30
From Baltimore to Lakewood there is only one bridge, therefore it costs less to travel
So I'd say somewhere around $20

We usually offer 20 for gas and tolls when my kids get a ride from Lakewood to Baltimore

Private transportation is much more than bus. But it depends if this is being done as a service, or if the friend is going anyway.

20 sounds very low. It’s a 3 hour drive. I would say at least 50.

My friend is going anyways. But she is coming from North and will have to make a stop in Lakewood.

NOT if the person is driving anyways!
It's ridiculous to pay for all the gas and tolls
But yes if it's a private transport or out of the way charge way more than 20

If she was going anyway and it's a one time thing, I wouldn't charge. If she is going much out of her way and wants to, she can charge $30-$40 or so, or tell them "I'm going anyway, why don't you contribute as you see fit?".

I live in Baltimore and have a son in yeshiva in Lakewood. If the person is going anyway, $20 each way is standard. But, if the driver is renting a car or going out of their way, to pick up/drop off the one needing the ride, then it should be more.

Yes

We offer not everyone takes it if going anyway. When we go to Baltimore and give rides we don’t ask for money if someone offers we usually take

There is no bus to Baltimore. Not from Lakewood or Brooklyn. I wish there was!

Monsey trails Baltimore/BP line stopped existing in March 2020 (covid) and never started again. They claim there is not enough demand.

There’s a Baltimore shuttle that goes Baltimore to Lakewood and back. I think it’s $40. It’s basically a van


(443) 962-4261
