Earn Like the Pros

You want to make more money — and we want to help you get there. Here are strategies Lyft’s top drivers look out for every week.


High-Demand Hours

Depending on where you live, you may earn the most during morning and evening rush hour, or on Saturday nights when passengers head home for the night.

Popular Events and Locations

Concerts and sports games are great opportunities to earn — so be sure to look out for Lyft texts and emails for a heads up on events in your city.
