The Mayor of Seattle has proposed raising pay for Uber and Lyft drivers by 30%.
How does the Mayor’s Fare Share plan raise driver pay?
- Fare Share triples driver pay per-minute from $0.18 to $0.56 at a minimum
- Fare Share stops cuts to per-mile pay, with a minimum of $1.17 per mile
- Fare Share makes annual adjustments, with pay increases as cost of living rises
That would translate into a 30% raise on average if passed into law.
What would Fare Share pay raises look like on typical trips?
- A trip that used to pay $10, would instead pay the driver about $13
- A $20 trip would increase to around $26
- A $30 trip would increase to almost $40 in the driver’s pocket
Add it up throughout the day, and a driver is estimated to increase earnings by more than $65 after 10 hours of work.

Do drivers deserve to be paid even better than this?
YES! That's why Drivers Union is fighting to build on the plan with higher per-mile pay, fairness & transparency on commissions, protections for Blackcar & SUV drivers, and other living wage improvements.
