Introducing Accelerate: The Premier Driver Rewards Program

Introducing Accelerate: The Premier Driver Rewards Program

Being a Lyft driver just got even sweeter.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce Accelerate: Lyft’s premier driver rewards program with a custom curated set of discounts and perks for the Lyft driver lifestyle.

Accelerate is a tiered program, meaning that the more rides a driver gives each month, the more rewards they’ll unlock.


Here’s how it works:

Silver Status

Every Lyft driver starts with access to Silver Status, including support for taxes through Intuit, health insurance options through eHealth, vehicle purchases through AutoNation Direct, and more.

Gold Status

By giving 20 rides each month, drivers unlock Gold Status, with dozens of ways to save on car expenses, health, entertainment, and wellness services (think gym memberships and movie tickets!). Some of the 600+ new perks for Gold Status holders include discounts at Firestone, Goodyear, TireBuyer, and Advanced Auto Parts.

Platinum Status

Drivers who cruise all the way to 200 rides per month will earn Platinum Status. All Lyft drivers already have access to a fast and responsive support team, but any time our Platinum VIPs want to reach Lyft HQ, their message will be moved to the front of the queue for the fastest reply.

We wouldn’t be where we are today without the tens of thousands of community drivers across the country who are powering the Lyft movement. Today, we say “thank you” to the parents, students, entrepreneurs, and artists who are opening up the seats in their cars to provide welcoming, affordable and memorable rides. These rewards are for you.
