Uber and Lyft drivers, use this tool to see how much you’re being screwed
My guess? A lot.
Transportation enthusiasts at Jalopnik want to know how much Uber and Lyft are taking from drivers after changes to Surge (Uber) and Prime Time (Lyft) pricing.
According to reports, pricing structures have changed and in many cases gone up during these busy times, but drivers’ pay remained the same – so what gives?
Drivers, use this tool to help bring to light pay issues with Uber and Lyft
Jalopnik is on the case and is bringing back a tool it first used on Uber, but is now applicable to Lyft, as well. This tool will be used to get a better look at just how much companies are pocketing. My guess? A lot.
To use the tool, drivers will need to tell Jalopnik the ride’s destination, how much the rider paid, how much the driver made, and in turn, how much the company made. Amounts are supposed to be rounded to the nearest dollar amount, but does require drivers to upload a screenshot of the actual fare.
The screenshot is used for verification purposes only and will be deleted upon successful verification.
It will definitely be interesting to see the results of the study, and if I were a betting man, I’d say that results will show the ride-hailing services coming out on top.
