In May, we started experimenting with Lyft Plus in San Francisco as a new ride option with increased capacity. Thousands of rides later, passengers are now using Lyft Plus on a daily basis, whether for a night on the town with friends, or a day trip with family across the San Francisco Bay.
More than anything else, passengers loved the extra seats with Lyft Plus, and we heard that feedback loud and clear. This week, by popular request, we’re expanding Lyft Plus as a six-seater option to the whole community nationwide — giving you an even bigger lineup of super-sized rides.
Starting this week, Lyft Plus will be available in all Lyft markets across the country as a six-passenger option within the app. The difference from our initial offering in San Francisco? Any driver with a six-seater vehicle — from SUVs to minivans — can accept Lyft Plus requests. For passengers, Lyft Plus is the same friendly, reliable, and affordable ride, but with more fun to go around.
We’re also dropping the prices on Lyft Plus from our initial experiment. Your new six-passenger ride will cost just 1.5x the price of original Lyft.
September means back to school, football games, and backyard barbecues to enjoy the last few days of late-summer. Whether you need extra space or just want to roll with all your friends, a bigger ride is now just a tap away.
