The following fees may apply during your Lyft ride. These fees may be retained by your driver, Lyft, or other third parties. If something looks like it was incorrectly charged to your ride, send us a message by tapping 'Contact Support' below.
Lyft features an automated toll system for every city in which we operate. See a list of toll locations.
The estimated tolls for your ride will be included in the upfront price you see when you request your ride. Your driver will be reimbursed for any applicable tolls that your ride may have passed through as part of the payment for the ride. We can't remove or refund the cost of the toll if a passenger pays for it outside of the app. It's against our Terms of Service for passengers to use cash for portions of a Lyft ride except for tips, which can also be done in the app.
The toll amount charged is based on the electronic toll collection system price, such as FasTrak, TollTag, Good to Go! Pass, or E-ZPass.* This is normally less expensive than paying in cash. We encourage drivers to use these systems so that they have a smooth, fast experience when going through tolls, and aren't paying more than necessary.
* Heads up:
- A $20 surcharge, which includes tolls, is added to the fare on all trips between New York City and New Jersey. If the trip begins in New Jersey and crosses the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge there is an additional $19 surcharge, for a total of $39 added to the price, which again includes tolls.
- Massachusetts tolls are charged at the commercial E-ZPass rate.
