Heat maps are now featured in the Lyft app for both iOS and Android drivers in major cities nationwide.
On average, you can see a 10% bump in earnings by heading toward those pink tiles. The data refreshes every minute, considering both demand and available drivers, so the tiles may change as you interact with them.

We’ll miss seeing our neighbors on the road, but spoiler alert: We’re also working on interactive, community-focused features for the app. Stay tuned!
