We've got great news for Lyft Plus drivers: You're about to see a lot more Lyft Plus requests, earning you 1.5x the price of original Lyft. Normally, Lyft Plus drivers are open to receiving ride requests for both Lyft Plus and original Lyft. However, starting today, Sept. 26, Lyft Plus drivers in select markets will get a boost during our busiest times by receiving only Lyft Plus requests.
Why the change? We're seeing unprecedented demand for high-occupancy vehicles, but during peak hours our Lyft Plus drivers tend to get tied up in original Lyft rides. Now you can count on making the most during your time on the road by locking in Lyft Plus requests when demand is highest.
That means happier passengers — and higher earnings for you.
