Some cities that Lyft operates in use specialized subregion pricing as a way to balance driver earnings with passengers’ wallets. Subregion pricing may be specialized for distinct areas in a given city.
Drivers who pick up passengers in a subregion receive the subregion’s rate in their earnings. Subregion pricing applies to all modes available in a region.
To see subregions:
- Head to our Cities page and choose your city
- Look below normal rates and active ride types
- If your city has subregion pricing, you’ll see a link to the subregion’s blog page below the region's normal rates
Subregions don’t have distinct incentives.
Any incentive like Average Hourly Guarantees or Prime Time offered to a broader city also applies to rides taken in the subregion. An exception is when subregions are also guarantee zones for Average Hourly Guarantees. Power Driver Bonus is calculated based on the number of completed rides in a region, so rides to, from, or within a subregion count toward that total.
