About this app

Driving with Lyft just got better. Apply to start earning.

We invest in our drivers. With refreshed bonuses. Revamped rewards. And safety tools that matter. Keep reading.

On top of hourly earnings and tips, we launched a bigger, better Lyft Rewards program.

We look out for your safety, which includes 24/7 support and improved standards for riders.

We’re here to help if you need us—via phone, email, and in-person at our Hubs and Driver Centers.

From maps made for rideshare to enhanced safety tools, our new app is designed to help you succeed.

Passengers are encouraged to tip in the app—and you keep the whole amount.

With Lyft Express Drive, you don't need your own car to earn (available in select markets).

For Lyft drivers, continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

By downloading the app, you agree to receive communications from Lyft, including push notifications; and (ii) to allow Lyft to collect your device's language settings. You can opt out of receiving push notifications through your device settings.

I've been doing Lyft driving for a couple weeks now. You need to really update the maps because they glitch badly. At times I can be ahead of the maps and have to slow down, at times I'll be looking at the route at an intersection and the highlighted route will bounce around. At times I can be on the right road and when I turn correctly it will view like I'm driving a road beside the highlighted route. With a better map, it'll help drive more confidently

The latest update (1-4-23 and previously 11/29/22) is awful. The built in map doesn't work right, as in directions are way off. The arrow marker for your vehicle is huge and obscures a large portion of the map and will not point in the direction of travel. Mine always points east whether connected to the infotainment or not. Settings are -other apps, Google maps since I have an Android auto enabled infotainment screen. Makes navigating easier to use it. This is an Awful update.

The app is pretty user friendly and straight forward. But it has some bugs, for one the in-app navigation options don't properly show your direction. I would like to see in a future update, the app allow landscape mode. I use a foldable phone for the extra real estate yet can't use it on this particular platform. I'm sure the same goes for other driver's that use a tablet device.
