Lyft charges extra for riders being late.
Lyft has recently implemented a new rule that charges riders for being late. The wait-time fee is charged at a per-minute rate when a driver is kept waiting for more than two minutes at the pickup location. The fee may be higher if the ride is busy. Lyft Shared, Lyft Access, Lyft Assisted, and Car Seat rides are exempt from this fee. Riders with a disability who need more time to board a vehicle can submit a waiver for wait-time fees if their disability impacts their ability to board a vehicle on time. Lyft does not disclose the exact amount of the fee, but it is likely to be around 60 cents per minute, the same as Uber’s wait-time fee.
Riders need to be aware of this new rule and ensure they are ready and waiting when their driver arrives. This will help keep the platform running smoothly and avoid any unnecessary fees. Lyft drivers also need to be aware of the new rule and make sure they arrive at the pickup location on time. If they arrive early, they should wait until the arranged pickup time before starting the clock.
Ridesharing apps are becoming increasingly popular and offer a convenient and affordable way to get around. However, riders must be aware of the rules and regulations of each service to ensure they are not charged any unnecessary fees. Lyft’s new wait-time fee is an important rule to be aware of and riders should make sure they are on time and ready to meet their driver when they arrive.
Lyft is not the only ridesharing service that implements wait-time fees. Uber has also implemented a similar rule, so riders should also be aware of this when using Uber services.
