HELLO, FUTURE DRIVERFind my city

Hey Seattle, start earning in your city.

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

High demand

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

Smooth rides

Seahawks games and concerts at Key Arena 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 Seattle-Tacoma 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

Smartphone, car key, and driver's license

Getting approved

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 Seattle.
