Lyft expands Green mode to more cities, airports, and riders

Apr 2, 2024

Riders in 22 cities and at 40 airports can now request an electric or hybrid vehicle in the Lyft app. 

Green first launched to Lyft Business customers in 14 cities. This expansion gives millions of riders without a business profile access to more sustainable modes. It also aims to create more earning opportunities for electric and hybrid drivers.

“Electric and hybrid vehicles are incredibly popular. More than 20% of rides on the Lyft platform are currently in a ‘green’ vehicle. We intend to keep growing that number. With Green mode in dozens of new cities and airports, we’ve made it easier for riders to choose lower-emission trips wherever they need to go,” said Audrey Liu, Lyft’s Executive Vice President of Rider Experience.

We’re working to make the Lyft platform more sustainable by helping drivers switch to electric vehicles and riders take more sustainable modes. To request a Green ride, simply open the Lyft app and swipe down to the Green mode option when electric or hybrid vehicles are close by.

Austin, New York City, Chicago, Washington D.C., Denver, Spokane, Los Angeles, Orange County, Portland, Phoenix, San Diego, Santa Barbara, Seattle, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Sacramento, Napa and Sonoma Counties, Tacoma, Edmonton, Vancouver, Toronto, and the Greater Toronto Area
