What is Lyft?

Lyft is a platform that connects drivers with individuals and organizations that need rides.

In addition to helping passengers get from A to B, in select markets drivers may also opt in to deliver essential items — such as groceries, medical supplies, and home necessities — to people who need them.

We know this is a challenging time, and as the COVID-19 crisis continues the well-being of Lyft drivers is our priority. Visit our site to learn what steps we’re taking to support drivers, and how we’re finding new opportunities for them to earn while helping their communities.
