Rides for women, by women
We're driving change one ride at a time. Now, women and nonbinary drivers in select cities can turn on Women+ Connect to increase their chances of matching with more women and nonbinary riders.
Introducing Women+ Connect
Women+ Connect offers more choice, opportunity, and peace of mind for women and nonbinary riders and drivers.
Why we built Women+ Connect
To create opportunities
Women+ Connect gives women and nonbinary people more control over their driving experience, offering them more choice in how they earn.
To make rideshare better
Diverse communities are stronger, more interesting communities. Making Lyft better for women is one way we’re making Lyft better for everyone.
To connect women
Good vibes. Conversations that turn into friendships. Comfortable silence. A nod that says "I get it." Women+ Connect empowers women and nonbinary riders and drivers.
We’re just getting started
Women+ Connect is available in San Francisco, Chicago, Phoenix, San Diego, and San Jose—with more cities coming soon. We’ll let you know when this feature launches in your area.

“Women+ Connect was built with intentionality to make rideshare better for women and nonbinary riders. When rideshare is better for these folks, it’s better for everyone, and we at HRC stand behind that.”
