How does this affect drivers? As we have seen in many cities, when prices are lowered, demand among riders increases. But what we have found is that the increased demand turns into more efficiency for the driver, more trips for every hour, and more earnings for every hour on the road.

We are so confident with the prices cuts, as we announced just weeks ago in the United States, that we are implementing an earnings guarantee for our partners in every city where we’re cutting prices. We feel that it is important for drivers to have this level of certainty and comfort going into a price cut.

These prices are temporary and the more you ride, the more likely we can keep prices low (and wallets happy) in the long term. We expect these price cuts to bring lower costs for riders, higher earnings for drivers, shorter wait times for both, and a better experience for all.
