Rather than charge a flat commission, Lyft's portion of ride payments is shown in the app and Driver Dashboard as Lyft’s Platform Fees.
Lyft Platform Fees are variable, meaning they can change. The amount includes the difference between what the passenger paid and your driver earnings, tips, tolls, and other charges (like airport fees and taxes). Unless we break it out separately, fees include Lyft’s Service Fee, which we use to offset costs like liability insurance on rides.
Drivers earn the per-kilometre, per-minute rates identified on their region’s Rate Card regardless what the passenger pays. Lyft takes no fees from tips.
