Unbelieveable - Safe rider fee - at least they changed the name


Rider Fee does not affect your total payment -- for transparency, this amount is added then subtracted from trip earnings since it is paid for by riders and collected by Uber. This fee supports our continued efforts to ensure the safest possible platform for Uber riders and drivers. Split fare fees and some airport surcharges are also included here.

There are times when a statement is so blatantly false that there is but one word in the English dictionary that describes it. Lie

This fixed fee is most likely the amount private investment gets paid out. It's a way to provide a consistent amount based on the number of rides vs a varying amount if say it were based on a % of the fare(varies with length). A fixed fee for each trip provides numbers easier to caluculate for VCs.
