I agree to Lyft's Terms of Service

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.


High demand

Location is everything. From commuter stops downtown to weekend brunch spots in Uptown, we’ll help you find the areas where you’ll earn the most, every day of the week.

Smooth rides

Games at US Bank Stadium and shows at The Xcel Energy Center bring the biggest crowds. At select venues, we’ll show you the exact door or arena entrance, so pickups and drop-offs are always convenient.

Airport earnings

Lyft is available at Minneapolis-Saint Paul 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.


Smartphone, car key, and driver's license

Getting approved

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.

Red car

Your car

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, and you might have to meet an odometer requirement.

Blue car

No car? We've got you

Express Drive offers everything you need to earn, all in one car. Upgrade to a 2018 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.

Here for you.
