Uber appears to be rolling out the 3rd booking fee increase this year, with a corresponding minimum fare increase. I expect Lyft to match the Uber Booking Fee increase soon. It's 40 cents for XL and 50 cents for XL and premium. For UberX: In February, from $1.30 to $1.65 then $1.65 to $1.80 Now in July, 1.80 to $2.20 This is a 69% increase since February. Of course, Drivers get none of it! Does anyone seriously believe that Uber's overhead, matching a driver and rider, has increased 69% in six months? More likely skyrocketing legal fees, write-off of failing self-driving program, and of course TK's Golden Parachute. This must be part of Uber's well publicized "180 days of change". You got a tip feature, right? (sarcastic) Uber may now take over half the rider fare when you add both the booking fee and the (up to 30%) Uber cut. Even more than half for Upfront Pricing and various other tricks. Please let us know if and when you see any booking fee increase in your market. The easiest way is using the rider-App, not the driver-App.
