Recently, Lyft announced its plans to add a small fee for rides in an attempt to support drivers struggling with growing gas prices.

“We’ve been closely monitoring rising gas prices and their impact on our driver community. Driver earnings overall remain elevated compared to last year, but given the rapid rise in gas prices, we’ll be asking riders to pay a temporary fuel surcharge, all of which will go to drivers. We’ll share more details shortly,” said CJ Macklin, a spokesperson for Lyft.

“Driver earnings overall remain elevated compared to last year, but given the rapid rise in gas prices we’ll be asking riders to pay a temporary fuel surcharge, all of which will go to drivers,” Macklin said.

More details about this will be provided soon enough, as the company hasn’t mentioned yet the exact amount that passengers will end up paying more or the exact time when the tax will go into effect. 

Lyft has been keeping an eye on the cost of fuel and its effect on drivers and sympathizing with them as they are accountable for covering the cost of their gas.

The initiative of the company follows Uber’s announcement of a temporary fuel surcharge due to the gas prices spikes, adding “either $0.45 or $0.55 on each Uber trip,” depending on the location.
