From Friday 9 June 2017 onwards, Uber will be increasing the minimum fare paid by passengers.
This minimum fare announcement means more money for uberX drivers, especially those who accept a number of shorter trips in and around the CBD of each Australian city
The minimum fare will increase to $9 in Sydney, $8 in Canberra, $7.50 in Melbourne and Brisbane and $7 in Perth and Adelaide.
The new minimum fare prices includes an added 55¢ booking fee that is paid by uberX passengers. Uber will take 50¢ of the booking fee and provides drivers with 5¢ to cover the GST component that is paid to the Australian Tax Office.
The changes were implemented following roundtable discussions with Uber drivers in each city.
On Thursday 1 June 2017, Splend launched it’s Member Benefits Program, which includes a 6¢ per litre fuel discount at BP Petrol Stations, a weekly fuel credit account with WEX Motorpass, a corporate health plan with HCF and discounted money transfer. Click here to find out more.
