How fares are calculated

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

  • Standard trip fare

    Earn a base fare for every trip, plus amounts for each minute and mile you drive.

  • 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 is a fee Uber charges for trips made through the app that helps fund things like app development and customer support.


How toll fees work

Tolls are charged to riders and automatically added to your fare

You can see your toll amount 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, you can 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.

The basics of tipping

Riders can tip you directly through the app for the service you provide. You can see total tips in your weekly summary. No service fees are applied to tips.
