When you’re on the road, you should be able to rely on earning with Lyft. Recently, we’ve made a few improvements that drivers can depend on — so you can earn more, every time you drive.
Increased Rates for Line Rides
Last month, we increased rates for time and distance on Lyft Line routes nationwide, resulting in an average 7% increase in earnings. No matter where you drive, you can rely on the same earnings for original Lyft requests and Line rides. For more insight on co-founder John Zimmer’s policy of putting drivers first, read this.
