The ride-hailing company Lyft announced on Tuesday that it was putting an earnings algorithm under test in 18 US cities, allowing drivers to see the destination and pay information prior to accepting a request.

Testing filters that give drivers the choice of their rider and the ability to establish a preferred driving radius is also an investment. Due to rising fuel and maintenance expenses, ride-hailing company drivers have long wanted access to such information.
According to Lyft President John Zimmer, “We’ll also build Upfront Pay over time to incorporate bonuses and incentives.”

MEANWHILE, DRIVERS HAVE CRITICISED UBER’S UPFRONT PAYMENT SYSTEM.

Jude Wolfe, a California-based driver, claims that because Uber is collecting a larger portion of drivers’ revenue, more drivers are quitting and others are being forced to travel further for pick-ups at a time when gas prices are already high.

She added in a campaign requesting equitable share from Uber that “much of this problem can be solved, if we did not have the burden on us to accept the last five out of 10 rides in order to preserve our upfront details.”

According to Lyft, which plans to introduce upfront pay “without restrictions,” a poll of more than 1,000 drivers revealed that more than 70% of the drivers preferred the upfront pay model to the earlier pay options.
