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 Prime Time offered to a broader city also applies to rides taken in the subregion. Ride Challenges are calculated based on the number of completed rides in a region, so rides to, from, or within a subregion count toward that total.
