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.
Location is everything. From commuter stops in MidCity to weekend brunch spots in the French Quarter, we’ll help you find the areas where you’ll earn the most, every day of the week.
Local events like Mardi and Jazz Fest 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.
Lyft is available at Louis Armstrong 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 be at least 21, have a smartphone, and pass an online DMV and background check. We’ll ask you to upload some vehicle documents, and meet a few requirements for New Orleans.
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 year will also need to be 2002 or newer.
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.
