College students love Lyft. Now that major universities in Philadelphia (like UPenn and Temple) are back in session, you can expect high demand near their campuses.
Give the smaller schools some love. Villanova, Haverford, and Bryn Mawr may not have a large student population, but they're located outside of Center City. That means there are less drivers around — and more ride requests for you.
Drive before and after classes, too. The Main Line runs alongside a commuter train, so its passengers will need help getting from the train to their final destination. Driving past sundown? Manayunk has a popping bar scene, making it a hot spot for late nights.
