Last week, Drivers Union delivered a petition signed by more than 1600 drivers calling for improvements to the Fare Share Plan. 

Because of activism from drivers like you, Councilmembers voted today to:

  • Increase per-mile driver pay to at least $1.33/mile
  • Enact a $5 minimum driver payment on short trips (No more $2.80 trips!)
  • Require transparency on company commissions

That adds up to a 40% pay raise, combined with other provisions in the Fare Share Plan that nearly triple driver pay per-minute to $0.56/min, and enact yearly cost of living increases.

We are winning. But, it’s not over yet.

Uber and Lyft will do everything they can to stop drivers from winning the pay raise you deserve.

Will you email City Hall right now and tell them to pass Fair Pay?
