Lyft issues two fees per ride: the Lyft Platform Fee and the Service Fee.
The Lyft Platform Fee is a variable amount that helps us maintain the platform, make new app improvements, and keep our community growing. The amount reflects the difference between what the passenger paid and your earnings, tips, tolls, and other charges (like airport fees and taxes).
The Service Fee is a fixed amount that helps support regulatory, safety and operational costs. The Service Fee is included in the passenger’s total fare and doesn’t impact the amount you earn for each ride.
Drivers earn the per-mile, per-minute rates identified on their region’s Rate Card regardless what the passenger pays. Lyft takes no fees from tips.
