Pricing when it's busy

Our goal at Lyft is to connect you with best-in-class service at an affordable price when and where you need it.

Passengers may see higher ride costs when there’s more demand for rides. If your upfront price is higher than expected, it might be busier than usual.

If you add or change destinations mid-ride, you may see an itemized "Prime Time" charge in your receipt. This amount, normally included in your upfront price, is dynamically calculated based on ride demand at the time and place your ride was requested.
