How much do Lyft and Uber take from drivers? @jalopnik wants to find out

Curated via Twitter from FutureShift’s twitter account….

You can upload a screenshot of your digital receipt — both Uber and Lyft break down the earnings on each fare, showing drivers any surge bonuses, promos, tolls, and actual trip distance and time.

The outlet hopes enough drivers submit info about their fares to prove "Uber and Lyft’s new surge fares screw drivers and riders".

Transportation media outlet Jalopnik is investigating what it believes are unfair pricing structures, with Uber and Lyft taking as much as half of fares in some situations.

The site asks questions about where you were driving, how much the rider paid, whether it was a surge period, and if Uber or Lyft lost or earned money.

In the past two years, Lyft says, the average hourly earnings for drivers has gone up 7 percent.

The site needs a substantial number of receipts to calculate what percentage Uber and Lyft are taking — based on a representative sample.

Uber and Lyft keep changing how their drivers get paid.
