Now, Lyft and General Motor’s Express Drive – the all-inclusive rental program that gives our most active Lyft drivers the opportunity to access cars at no cost – is available to drivers in Boston, Washington D.C., and Baltimore.
This expansion follows the incredible success of Express Drive in Chicago. Since launching in late March, we’ve seen:
- 30% of new driver applicants in Chicago request an Express Drive vehicle
- Nearly 1 million miles have been driven in Express Drive vehicles
- $500,000 earned by drivers in the program in its first eight weeks – providing new economic opportunities
Offering new solutions for vehicle access is one of the key ways Lyft treats drivers better. It’s our goal for every renter to earn a $0/week rental by hitting weekly ride requirements. Outside that incentive, rental pricing varies per market and continues to include insurance and standard maintenance. We’re also expanding the types of vehicles available through Express Drive in all markets, meaning renters are now able to choose their preference among several GM vehicles.
Express Drive brings benefits for passengers, too – from newer, spacious cars to more drivers on the road. Express Drive removes the biggest barrier to becoming a Lyft driver, unlocking access to the Lyft platform’s flexible earning opportunities.
