How Lyft works

Turn on Driver Mode

Open the app and turn on "Driver Mode"

Accept Request

Receive and accept requests directly from the app

Get Paid

Payments are deposited directly into your bank account every week

Driver Insurance

Lyft is the first to provide $1M liability insurance which applies as primary to a driver’s personal automobile insurance policy when matched with a passenger (and applies as excess insurance if you have commercial insurance). This policy applies in all states, except New York.

Passenger Ratings

Drivers rate passengers after each ride, so you’ve always got a say. We also require passengers to sign up for Lyft through Facebook, and to provide valid credit card information for identity verification purposes.

I initially started driving to help with moving costs to Chicago, but now it's a nice weight off my shoulders. I don't have to stress about work now.
