Sample fares are estimates only and do not reflect variations due to discounts, traffic delays or other factors. Actual fares may vary. You agree to pay the fare shown upon confirming your ride request. If your route or destination changes on trip, your fare may change based on the rates above and other applicable taxes, tolls, charges and adjustments. Subject to Lyft’s Terms of Service.

If your upfront price for a ride looks high, it might be busier than usual. This can happen when there are more ride requests than available drivers.

Other charges, like driver bonuses, may also be added to your fare.

†Applicable tolls, surcharges, taxes and fees may also be added to your fare. Return tolls will be added to westbound trips through or across the Holland Tunnel, Lincoln Tunnel, George Washington Bridge, Goethals Bridge, and Outerbridge Crossing. A $20 surcharge, which includes tolls, is added to the fare on all trips between New York City and New Jersey. If the trip begins in New Jersey and crosses the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge there is an additional $19 surcharge, for a total of $39 added to the price which again includes tolls.

‡Trips to or from JFK, LGA, and EWR are subject to a $2.50 surcharge. Each Shared trip to or from JFK, LGA, and EWR is subject to a $1.25 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.

Applicable tolls and surcharges may also be added to your fare.

Wait time fees may apply at a per minute rate 2 min after your driver arrives at pickup (or 2 min after the original pickup time if they arrive early). Riders with a valid waiver for disability are exempt.
