The Service Fee is a variable amount added per trip. It reflects the difference between what the rider paid and your earnings including tips and tolls, and any other fees retained by us such as airport fees, taxes, and surcharges.
Service Fee amounts vary per trip; they are not a set percentage.
You can always see the exact Service Fee associated with a particular trip in the "Trip Details" page on your Driver Dashboard. It will be listed under "Uber Receives."
The fee helps us maintain and make continuous investments to enhance our technology. It covers improvements such as new app features that help you make the most of your time while online and driving with Uber.
It also helps cover costs for marketing and payment processing for drivers, as well as 24/7 phone support, in-app support, and in-person support at our Greenlight Hubs.
