Recently, several drivers reached out to RSG for more information on the Lyft Express Drive rate cuts. These rate cuts have been taking place across the country, although the roll out has been happening incrementally. RSG contributor Paula Gibbins explains what’s happening with these rate cuts and how they could affect drivers below.
Lyft has updated the terms on their Express Drive program, lowering distance and weekly rental rate coverage due to ‘accident insurance costs.’ Over the last few weeks, drivers from across the country have reached out to RSG via email and Twitter to point out these changes, and we’ll cover what’s going on and why Lyft is making these changes.
