Business Casual: Is Lyft Keeping Their Drivers in the Dark?

+ more

 

A change to the drivers’ app for Lyft has some wondering if the rideshare company is intentionally keeping their drivers in the dark about the way the company is splitting fares.

Where there was once a “Ride Pays” section available for drivers to see on the app, there’s now only a link that directs users to a weekly aggregate of fares. Lyft officials said they wanted to make it easier for drivers to determine how much they were making, but drivers more skeptical.

This move also calls into question the employment status of rideshare drivers, which once again highlights the ongoing dispute between Uber/Lyft and their drivers.
