With the holiday season around the corner, it’s a great time to start driving with Lyft. Be your own boss and earn on the road with the ridesharing app that matches drivers with passengers requesting rides.
If you are looking to make extra cash for holiday expenses, gifts, or even the heating bill, Lyft can help you achieve your goal. You keep 100% of your tips — and Lyft has even started adding higher tip options, which has resulted in a 13% increase in tips on rides over $25.
Lyft offers four types of rides within the app:
Lyft Line, which is not available in all cities, is the cheapest option and will match passengers with other riders if they are going in the same direction.
Lyft is the basic and most popular offering that matches passengers with nearby drivers.
Lyft Plus matches passengers with a six-seater car.
Lyft Premier matches passengers with a more Premium ride with seating for four.
Lyft Lux matches passengers with a luxury car
Balance your busy schedule by setting your own hours. Choose to drive full-time, between jobs, or just on the weekends — you’re in control. No car? No problem. Their Express Drive program makes it easy and affordable to rent a car and earn on the road.
There will be plenty of opportunities to earn as people go shopping, travel to visit family, and attend holiday parties. Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year, can be a big day for ride requests as people rush to take advantage of big sales and try to avoid hectic parking lots. Plus, there’s no waiting around for payday. Cash out when you want and get paid instantly through their Express Pay feature.
Lyft also offers driver incentives to help you make even more. After the holidays are over, other seasonal work opportunities may end, but you can keep driving and earning all year long.
