Whether you’re driving to pay the bills, take control of your schedule, or meet interesting people, Lyft will help you get there. The Lyft Driver app matches you with local passengers, and lets you earn when you want. When the ride’s over, passengers pay in the app, and tips are always 100% yours.
EARN ON YOUR OWN TERMS
Location is everything. From popular commuter stops downtown to weekend brunch spots on Rainey Street, we’ll help you find the areas where you’ll earn the most, every day of the week.
Events at UT and shows in East Austin bring big crowds. At select venues, we’ll show you the exact door or arena entrance, so pickups and drop-offs are always convenient.
Lyft is available at Austin International Airport. The app helps you navigate local airports, and shows you where to pick up, where to drop-off, and where to wait for requests.
A FEW NECESSITIES
You’ll need to meet the age requirement for your region, have a smartphone, and pass an online DMV and background check. Requirements vary across cities.
You’ll need four doors and 5 to 8 seats — including yours (bonus points for a nice ride: You may qualify for premium modes). Your car will also need to meet your city’s year requirement.
No car? We've got you
Express Drive offers everything you need to earn, all in one car. Upgrade to a 2015 or newer car with our rental partners. Maintenance and insurance are fully covered, plus, you have unlimited miles to use for Lyft or personal use.
