New ride names. Smoother experiences.

Friends riding home in a Lyft Lux

You’ve told us that Lyft Line passengers are sometimes surprised to see another passenger in the car. Thanks to your feedback, we’ve renamed Lyft Line to Lyft Shared. In fact, we’ve renamed nearly all our rides, making them clearer so passengers know exactly what type of ride to request. We think these changes will improve everyone’s experience.

Rest assured, though: These changes will not impact your earnings or even the types of rides you give. See your driver rate card for earnings in your market or visit the Help Center.

See what’s changed:

Lyft Modes

Lyft Shared is the new Lyft Line. Now it’s clearer to passengers that they may be sharing the ride with other passengers.

Lyft XL is the new Lyft Plus. Passengers can easily request rides with extra seats.

Lyft Lux is our new category for all premium rides. We’ve made it crystal clear that these rides are extra special. There’s a Lux ride for every occasion and group size:

Premier is now Lyft Lux

  • High-end, four seats, the perfect way add a little luxury and arrive in style

Lux is now Lyft Lux Black

  • Premium black cars limited to the most luxurious makes and models

Lux SUV is now Lyft Lux Black XL

  • Premium black SUVs with space for up to six passengers

Our newly-renamed rides make it easier for passengers to find the right wheels for every occasion. When Lyft is clearer for everyone, driving is easier, too.
