Storytelling has been a cornerstone of our community since the beginning of Lyft, when our founding drivers got together over lunch to chat about their adventures on the road. Their reasons for driving were different — paying for tuition, meeting new people, filling a gap between other gigs — but each shared a passion for delivering delight through better rides.
Starting this week, you’ll see some of our best community stories online and in the wild with the hashtag #WhyILyft. Now’s your chance to add your voice to the chorus.

This is your story, and no one can tell it better than you. If you need some prompts, here are some examples from other drivers who’ve shared #WhyILyft:
- I Lyft because of the networking opportunities
- I Lyft to help pay for my triathlons
- I Lyft to demo my latest hip-hop track
- I Lyft because I’m a mom and need adult conversation
- I Lyft because I love sharing Starbursts
For those of us at HQ, hearing from drivers motivates us to continue making Lyft the best platform for you. We can’t wait to hear your story.
