"A newly filed class action suit from California resident Fernando Villaseñor alleges that Lyft played tricks with fare distribution to misrepresent the drivers' share and unfairly pour their lost income back into the company. Villaseñor's attorney, Larry Peluso, asserted that Lyft performed "sleight-of-hand" by setting fares relative to average taxi prices without letting drivers know what those taxi rates were. The drivers may have thought Lyft was taking a 20 percent cut when it was actually taking 43 percent."

    "Lyft Plans to Reveal More Payment Info to Drivers

    Lyft is testing a new earnings screen that will allow drivers to view the full information of who-got-what in each fare. This will be similar to how Uber displays the “full deal” in each fare and will allow for drivers to see how much Lyft took (or lost) on each ride:"
