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
We’ll keep you updated on where and when to get the most requests, and how to earn bonuses in your city.
The app makes it easy to keep track of every penny you earn, and shows all your bonus details.
Tap into destination mode: You’ll only get matched with requests along your route, so you can earn all the way home.
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

Here for you.
