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 Manhattan to weekend brunch spots in Brooklyn, we’ll help you find the areas where you’ll earn the most, every day of the week.
Broadway shows and events at Barclays Center or Madison Square Garden 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 JFK, EWR, and LGA. 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 York City.
Here for you.
