Uber’s made some big updates to its service over the past few weeks with the introduction of lower fares to a ton of cities across the US — and its latest change will be of particular interest to travelers in New York and New Jersey. The ride-sharing service announced this morning that it will be lowering fares by as much as 50% for travel from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to surrounding locales, including Midtown Manhattan, Jersey City and other destinations in the area.

Before the change, Uber estimated the cost of a fare from EWR to Midtown Manhattan to be roughly $83, but with the new prices, the cost estimate drops to just $44. Translation: Huge savings for passengers. Both of these sample fares also include the $20 surcharge for trips to New York City from EWR.

Of course, you can save even more if you have the Capital One Quicksilver Card, which will net you an extra 20% discount on all rides through April 30, 2016, or a participating American Express card like the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express, which currently offers a 2x bonus on Uber purchases.
