Passenger charges include the Lyft Platform Fee, the Service Fee, and any third-party fees.
These fees don’t impact the amount you earn. Your earnings are based on your Rate Card, and aren’t affected by the amount passengers pay.
The Lyft Platform Fee is a variable amount. We use this fee to help us maintain the platform, make app improvements, and grow our community.
The Service Fee is a flat amount based on the region. We use it to support some operational costs – like insurance and background checks.
Third-party fees include any local fees that passengers pay – like rideshare taxes, surcharges, and airport fees.
