In case you missed the letter from Lyft co-founder John Zimmer this morning, there was a big announcement: We’ve increased rates on Lyft Line rides nationwide. This means you’ll now earn the same rates for Lyft Line routes as you do for original Lyft rides, wherever you drive.
As John explains,
“It’s our long-standing belief that taking care of the driver community is not only the right thing to do, but also good for business. This is something we’ve invested a lot of energy in since day one, and it will always be a focus.”
Since we launched in 2012 with in-app tipping, we’ve continued to deliver popular programs like Express Pay and Express Drive, earnings opportunities like scheduled pickups, and the Driver Advisory Council.
We’ll continue to innovate on your behalf as we move forward together, incorporating your feedback and ideas wherever possible.
