Hey guys. I hope someone can help with this issue.

Lyft recently started showing an earning breakdown, which shows how much I get, and how much passenger paid. I started Lyft in 2015, so I pay 20% commission.

Current Detroit Lyft rates : $1 base, $1 per mile, $0.15 per minute, $2.90 service fee
What I get as driver : $0.8 base, $0.8 per mile, $0.12 per minute

When I look at earnings breakdown, I make what I suppose to make, but passenger is always charged more than what they should be charged.

An example:
Airport ride: 50.06 miles , 49 minutes
I get $49.72 = 0.8+0.8*50.06+49*0.12 , which is correct

Passenger should pay:
1+1*50.06+49*0.15+ 2.90+5 = $66.31 which includes airport fee

But earnings breakdown shows passenger paid $72.99

So, Lyft is getting more from passenger without giving anything to the driver? Do you have this issue?

It's called upfront pricing and to make your life easier ,ignore what the pax paid because it has no bearing on what you make. You are paid based on distance and time. Lyft and Uber charge the riders whatever they want.
