How fares are calculated

You'll earn based on the time and distance of each trip.

  • Standard trip fare

    Base fare is based on the time and distance driven per trip.

  • Surge

    Check the heat map in your app to find out when and where rider demand is high, so you can potentially earn more.

  • Cancellations

    Your time is valuable. When a rider cancels more than 2 minutes after you've accepted their trip, you'll be paid either the standard cancellation fee or the actual time and distance you spent driving toward the pickup, whichever amount is more.

  • Service fee

    This fee helps fund things like app development, customer support, and payment processing.

How toll fees work

Tolls are charged to riders and automatically added to your fare

In some cities, tolls are charged to riders and automatically added to your fare, while in others tolls are paid by the drivers. Please contact your local Uber support team for information about tolls in your city.

If you have received toll payment, you can see it in the Earnings section in your app. It will also appear in your weekly statement. Uber’s service fee is not applied to tolls. If an electronic toll pass is available in your area, it can help you breeze through toll booths.

Help with tolls

Once you complete a trip, if you don't see the toll in your trip details, request a toll review. Go to Help, select Trip Issues and Adjustments, then Issues with my fare, and choose My toll or parking fee wasn't included in my fare.
