Uber Driver Pay Rates by City (per Mile and per Minute)

This website contains affiliate links and we may be compensated for referrals.

Rideshare drivers keep asking, “how much does uber pay in my city?”, “how much does uber pay per mile?”, “how much does uber pay per minute?”, etc.

A recent Reddit thread asked drivers how much Uber pays in their city, and we have collected the results including the per-mile rate and the per-minute rate. We want to keep this page up to date, so please send us your rate card or leave a comment so we can update the rates for your city.

How does Uber calculate driver pay?

Per Mile Fee: Uber pays drivers a fee of $X.XX per mile driven (find your city’s per-mile fee below)

Per Minute Fee: Uber pays drivers a fee of $X.XX per minute. This is in addition to the per-mile fee. (find your city’s per-minute fee below)

There are a few other things to consider. Base Fare, Boost, Promotions, and Surge are not included in these rates. What are they?

Base Fare: Each ride starts with a base fare. This is a flat fee charged to the rider at the beginning of the ride.

Boost: Boost promotions multiply the amount earned for each trip. If your boost multiple is 2x, on a trip that would normally pay $15, you’ll earn $30 instead. You’ll see Boost promos in the app and in emails from Uber.

Promotions: Uber sometimes offers promotions (promos) on top of the other pay. Some Uber promos will be an additional $100 if you complete X trips this week, or something similar. Sometimes, these proms can be quite lucrative. Sometimes not. It all depends on the demand for drivers in your city.

Surge: At times with peak demand, Uber will create surge areas on the map. Rides taken in these areas can have either a multiplier for the fare, a flat additional bonus for the ride, or an upfront fare that may be higher than the standard fare shown in the Uber app.
