We’re rolling out three new features for Lyft Line, all designed based on your feedback. Remember: Every Line pickup counts as a ride, helping you reach milestones faster. With these updates, Line will bring you smoother rides, too.
Edit Party Size
When there’s room in your car, passengers can now adjust their party size right in the Lyft app. The feature helps you accommodate riders who request one seat, but have a friend in tow.
As always, safety is our first priority. If there aren’t enough seat belts for everyone, please ask your passenger to request another ride. (And if their friend is new to Lyft, consider sharing your referral code.)
Confirm Passengers in Any Order COMING SOON!
As Line grows in popularity, we’ll increasingly match multiple passengers at the same location.
Until now, you could only confirm the pickup or drop-off of one passenger at a time. With this update, you’ll be able to select a passenger’s name from a list as they enter or exit your car.
Arrive Automatically COMING SOON!
You’ll soon tap less at every pickup. Once you reach your passenger’s location, the Lyft app will automatically notify your passenger, so you can stay focused on the ride.
You accept a ride request as per usual, following navigation to your passenger.
When the passenger gets in your car, simply tap ‘Confirm’ and get going.
Once you reach the pickup location, the app automatically notifies the passenger, no tapping needed.
These new features are all part of our quest to bring you a better Lyft experience. Keep the feedback coming: You might just inspire a new update.
