Changes to NYC rates in 2019

January 31, 2019 / New York City

The Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) recently implemented the Driver Earnings Rule that requires Uber driver-partners in NYC to earn minimum per-minute and per-mile rates on trips. So, starting in February, we’ll be introducing new standard rates for all NYC Uber driver-partners.

Because of the Driver Earnings Rule, we’ve had to make other changes as well. Throughout the year, we’ll be introducing some new policies and features, and we want to share them with you.

Changes coming in 2019

  • Changes to per-minute and per-mile rates
  • Changes to your weekly promotions
  • “Out of Town” surcharge
  • Uber Black and Black SUV cancellation and wait time changes
  • Changes to Uber Black and Uber Black SUV eligibility
  • NY Congestion Surcharge
