Meet the Lyft Driver Advisory Council

In 2016, Lyft became the first rideshare company to launch a Driver Advisory Council (DAC), a diverse group of drivers who serve as a link between Lyft and the driver community nationwide. DAC members test new product features and weigh in on programs and policies that impact drivers. In the past, the DAC has organized driver meetups to build community, and weighed in on programs like LyftUp and features like in-app navigation, the amp and support for deaf drivers

Lyft recently grew the DAC program from 10 national council members to over 125 members across the US and Canada. DAC members continue to create ways for drivers to connect with one another, with the Lyft team, and with their local communities. DAC members spark valuable conversations and lead grassroots initiatives that help us improve people's lives with the world's best transportation.   

What does a council member do?

A Lyft Driver Advisory Council member is a leader who exemplifies Lyft’s Community Guidelines. They work to create welcoming spaces for drivers to gather, support one another, share experiences, and give back to the community. 

DAC members meet with the Lyft team regularly, sharing driver insights and gaining a deeper understanding of how Lyft develops features and programs to better serve drivers. Through this work, they can also share Lyft updates and best practices with other drivers. We look forward to working together in 2020!
