A More Reliable Way to Earn

 

When you’re on the road, every minute counts.

We’ve heard that driving toward Prime Time isn’t a reliable way to earn, so we’re building a more consistent way to earn extra. You’re one of the first to test it, and your feedback will shape a more valuable experience for everyone.

Our new (and improved) Heat Maps are personalized to your location, so demand is still high when you get there. When you drive into a purple or pink zone, we’ll guarantee a bonus on your next ride. And the amount you see is the amount you get — no more guessing.

Earn more in the purple zone.
Earn the most in the pink zone.

Drive toward the purple zone

When you reach the purple zone, we’ll guarantee a bonus on your next ride.

Get even more in the pink zone

The highest demand — and the highest bonus — is in the pink zone. Get there, and we’ll guarantee a higher bonus on your next ride.

Give a ride to claim your bonus

Once you’ve gotten a bonus guarantee, stay online and accept your next request. You’ll earn the bonus when you complete that ride.*

*You can only earn one bonus per trip. If it’s a Line ride, you’ll earn one bonus on the whole trip — not each pickup.

*You can only earn one bonus per trip. If it’s a Line ride, you’ll earn one bonus on the whole trip — not each pickup.

Whenever you see a Heat Map, drive toward the purple and pink zones to guarantee bonuses. If you go offline, cancel a ride, or miss a request, you’ll lose the guarantee.

Our new Heat Maps are testing in your city as an improvement on Power Zones and Prime Time, so you won’t see these features until the testing period has ended. At the end of the period (a few weeks) your old experience will be back — just like it was before — and you’ll have a chance to share feedback. Thank you for helping improve Lyft!
