We’ve made an important change to your Lyft ride history and ride earnings statements.
From now on, you’ll immediately see the HST collected after each ride is completed. So even if the passenger hasn’t rated the ride or added a tip you’ll know right away how much HST you’ll need to collect and save for the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency).
This means pay reflected in the earnings statements you see after you drop off your passenger should look higher than it did last week.
Why are we Doing This?
We’ve made this change to make it easier for drivers to get an idea of how much they’ll receive for each ride, right after each ride. Passengers still have up to 24 hours to add a tip and when they do, you’ll see your earnings increase.
Before now, we were adding the HST collected after passengers had rated the driver and this meant the ride history and earnings statements you saw after you dropped off your passenger did not reflect this amount.
If you have any additional questions, we’re ready to help face-to-face at the Driver Hub at 42 Hayden Street or over the phone — just tap ‘Call me’ in the app and we’ll call you back in 2 minutes or less*.

Here’s what your ride earnings statement will look like right after you’ve dropped off your passenger.
What’s New? HST Collected
Now, when you look at the total, you’ll know the minimum amount you’ll receive right after you’ve dropped off your passenger. Passengers have up to 24 hours to add a tip and when they do your earnings will increase.
