Become A Lyft Driver
What is Lyft?
Lyft is a ridesharing app that matches people needing rides with people giving them! Passengers pay directly through the app, so it couldn't be simpler.
Why become a Lyft Driver?
As a Lyft driver, you can accept tips easily from within the app, as opposed to other popular ridesharing services ! This presents the opportunity with making more money than Lyft competitors. The best part of it all is that you get to keep 100% of your tips! Lyft won't take a percentage!
Also opposed to other competitors, the Lyft app is simple and intuitive. You only need ONE app.... not two like the other guys out there. You are able to switch between a rider or a driver from within the app with the tap of a button. Easy. Need to know how much money you are going to make for the week? The app easily tells you under your profile.
If you have any issues with your account or as a driver, Lyft, as a company, is a friendly and helpful experience. The Lyft representatives quickly get back to you and do not hassle you or make you feel uncomfortable.
If you do not own a car, no problem! Lyft partners with car companies to help you get on the road - and fast! Depending on how much you driver per week, you may not have any car payment to worry about!
Safety for Drivers
Lyft is constantly working on improving the safety of their drivers. With the introduction of the Lyft Amp, riders and drivers are properly set up for success and able to connect with the right rider or driver based on the color of the Amp in the dashboard. As of right now, you have to have a certain number of completed rides to get the Amp, but that is because it just launched.
"Safety is our top priority and it is our goal to make every ride safe, comfortable, and reliable. Since the beginning, we have worked hard to design policies and features that protect our community. People say they use Lyft because they feel safe with our drivers, which is a product of this commitment."
- Logan Green, CEO and Co-Founder
Not only do riders rate the drivers, but the drivers rate the riders as well. If you had a bad experience and rate the rider or driver of 3 stars or below, you will never be paired with that person again.
