Driving Lyft Forward - Your 2018 DAC

In 2016, we announced the first-of-its-kind Driver Advisory Council. Now we’re continuing our tradition of engaging driver community leaders in cities across North America by announcing a new DAC.

Feedback from the Lyft community inspired us to choose a diverse group of drivers from different backgrounds who best represent our core values, from Los Angeles to Pittsburgh and Chicago to Austin.

Taking Your Feedback to Heart: 2018 DAC

Earlier this month, we asked the driver community and Lyft stakeholders across the country to share your input about finalists for the 2018 Driver Advisory Council (DAC). We received helpful feedback that has inspired us to take some time to rethink our approach.

Rest assured: we heard you loud and clear. We are taking your feedback to heart and working hard to deliver the best outcome for this important program.

We’re still excited to welcome a new Driver Advisory Council in 2018, continuing our tradition of engaging driver community leaders in cities across North America. Stay tuned for an update on our selection for the 2018 DAC.

It’s Official: The First-Ever Driver Advisory Council

Many of our best features started as ideas from Lyft drivers, from a better tipping screen to Express Pay. Naturally, we started to wonder how we could ensure every driver’s voice was heard — and decided a community-led forum would be the best place to start. Today, we’re excited to announce the first-of-its-kind Driver Advisory Council.

Representing different regions of the country, this team of seven drivers will have a direct link to the leadership at HQ, and work with the local driver community to help inform and shape future policies and features.

Each regional councilmember will hold a meetup to take your suggestions and ideas, and share exciting updates about things to come. So that more people have a chance to participate, we’ll select new members of the council each quarter.


We can’t wait to see what unfolds. Keep an eye out for your monthly meetup email, and look forward to another open call for council applications in the summer.
