Lyft Driver review

12 Sep 2020

Lyft Driver is an app that connects people who need a ride with drivers. Thanks to Prime Time pricing and helpful passenger pick-up features, Lyft drivers can make more than others.

Interface: Easy to Find Passengers 10/10

As a driver, you need to turn on the driver mode in the app and browse potential passengers on the map. When you accept a request, you should pick up a passenger at their location. An interesting feature is a Shared ride. The app will guide you from the first passenger to the final drop-off. Drivers just need to follow the app, which will find the best route. Passengers will know the price of the ride beforehand.

Features: Easy to Get Started 8/10

To get started as a driver, you need to confirm that you and your car meet Lyft's requirements. This job is great because it can accommodate your schedule. It also offers great payment rates during busy hours. However, the pay can also be quite poor if you don't work during peak hours.

Drivers should add basic personal info, such as their hometown and music preferences. Lyft says this encourages conversations during a ride. Drivers can also rate passengers and vice versa. In 2020, Lyft partnered with a car rental company Sixt to let drivers rent cars through the app. There are over 80 locations in the US. If you can't find the passenger, you can mark them as a no-show.

Usability: Available in 50 States 7/10

Lyft works in 50 states in the US, but it isn't available in small towns. However, the company has been growing and adding new areas. According to Lyft, drivers can make up to $35 per hour, but it can't guarantee anything. Besides, it takes a commission on your earnings.

Compatibility: For Android and iOS Smartphones 8/10

Lyft recommends drivers to use Android 5.0 or iOS 11 or higher. The company says that older systems may not show the interface correctly. You can track your rides by enabling GPS Services on your device. If you use Android 10 on your phone, you will receive more notifications from the app.

Summary

Lyft Driver is a good way to get some cash on the side in your spare time. It shows you how busy the area is, how close you're to a bonus and how much you've earned. It has everything you need to be a successful driver.
