A surcharge of 1% of the ride total will be added for trips originating within Pennsylvania, outside of Philadelphia. A surcharge of 1.4% of the ride total will be added for trips originating within Philadelphia.
At times of high demand your fare may be subject to a ‘Prime Time’ multiplier to keep vehicles available. The multiplier, if any, will be communicated to you at the time of your ride request. Applicable tolls and surcharges may also be added to your fare.
Return tolls will be added to westbound trips across the Ben Franklin Bridge, Walt Whitman Bridge, Betsy Ross Bridge, Commodore Barry Bridge, and Tacony-Palmyra Bridge.
Trips from PHL are subject to a $3.40 surcharge. Trips to PHL are subject to a $3.00 surcharge.
In some cases Lyft may quote you a fare at the time of your request instead of the variable rates above. If during your ride you change your destination, make multiple stops, or attempt to abuse the Lyft Platform, we may cancel the fare quote and charge you a variable fare based on the time and distance of your ride.
