A new tax will be imposed on your Uber or Lyft rides today if you take them between 6am-10pm weekdays. WGN has details:
Starting Monday, you'll pay more to use a Lyft or Uber in Chicago as the city's congestion tax takes effect.
The biggest impact will be downtown where single rides will get hit with a $3 surcharge between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. on weekdays.
Shared rides during those times will be taxed at a $1.25. Outside of the downtown zone, the tax will be a $1.25 for a single trip and 65 cents for shared rides.
This tax is expected to generate millions for the city.
