What’s the best form of transportation to take — if your choices are Uber, Lyft or a Baltimore city taxi — from Hampden to Fells Point?

Baltimore Sun reporter and photographer tried the journey using all three services. Using Lyft it cost $15. A Baltimore city taxi did the journey for $18.40 including tip. A standard Uber ride (not uberX, the version of Uber’s service that uses everyday, unlicensed drivers, as Lyft does): $61, after a $10 promo was applied.
