Vehicle Age Requirements in Maryland and Washington D.C. are Changing in 2018

Washington D.C. and the State of Maryland require that all ridesharing vehicles be 10 model years or newer. 

To continue driving with Lyft, you must switch to or add a 2008 model or newer vehicle to your account via the Driver Dashboard by January 1st, 2018.

1. Switch your Vehicle

If you already have an approved vehicle in your profile that is model year 2008 or newer, simply select that as your primary vehicle. Find out how here.

2. Add a New Vehicle

3. Rent a Vehicle

Good news: Lyft’s Express Drive rental car program is available in Baltimore and Washington, D.C.! If you want to continue earning with Lyft and don’t have a vehicle that meets the new standards, Lyft's Express Drive program helps you rent a car so you can start driving immediately. Learn more here.
