Trips may now include a fee to meet NYC’s new rule to ensure drivers earn a minimum per trip.
A minimum per-trip fee is added to any ride originating in NYC in which the total fare did not meet the minimum fare per the TLC's guidelines. In order to determine if the fare meets the requirements, we will run every trip through the formula set forth by the TLC.
If applicable, it’ll be included in your Upfront Fare and itemized in your invoice.
We’re aligned with the intentions of the regulation because it’s important to us that drivers make a fair wage. However, we believe the regulation is based on incomplete data and will ultimately harm drivers and riders, so we’ve filed a petition in court to arrive at a better solution.
