Weekly Ride Challenge

The weekly ride challenge program rewards drivers with bonuses based on how much they drove in a week.

The Basics

Drivers who successfully meet all weekly ride challenge requirements can get additional earnings. The program reset weekly — however, if you qualified one week for a challenge, you do not automatically qualify the next week. The weekly ride challenge isn't always available to all markets or drivers. If you don’t see an email from us about your eligibility, don’t be discouraged. Continue meeting the requirements below, and we’ll let you know whether you qualify. Always check your Driver Dashboard to see your eligibility for the current week and other details.


Payment Timing

We’ll calculate your weekly ride challenge at the end of the week (Monday at 4:59 AM local time) and add it to your weekly deposit, which is sent on Tuesdays. Heads up: Depending on your bank, you may not see the deposit until up to seven days later. This happens when your personal bank is still processing the deposit.

Weekly Ride Challenge & Lyft Line

Each Lyft Line passenger ride counts toward your weekly ride requirement as one completed ride. For example, if one Lyft Line ride includes two separate ride requests, it counts as two completed rides. All Lyft Line rides count toward the hour when the first Line request was made.


In some weeks, the weekly ride challenge may have benchmarks (or tiers) that, when met, let you earn more back. Note: The bonus amounts on tiers aren't cumulative, meaning they don't add up. For example, say a weekly ride challenge has a $50 tier and a $100 tier. The $50 tier may require you to give 30 total rides during the week. The $100 tier may require a 45 total rides. If you successfully met the $100 tier weekly ride challenge requirements, you would receive an additional $100 to your earnings, not $150.
