For nearly a decade, Lyft has been on a mission to improve people’s lives with the world’s best transportation. Today, millions of people count on Lyft to get around, earn supplemental income, and more.
To better understand Lyft’s growth and impact, we surveyed over fifty thousand drivers and passengers across the country. While we weren’t able to include every community in our survey, the results show some big strides towards our mission:
Passengers told us they go out more, stay out longer, visit new areas of their cities, and spend more at local businesses because of Lyft. They also save millions of travel hours and agree that Lyft gives them a safe way to get home after a night out.
We also learned more about drivers, most of whom drive with Lyft to earn extra money on a flexible schedule, while keeping other commitments for jobs, school, and their families. In fact, 82 percent drive fewer than 20 hours per week.
This is just the beginning of our journey. We’re excited to hear from more of you and to make our platform even more impactful. Together, we’re paving the way towards more efficient transportation, less greenhouse emissions, and greater economic potential in cities built for people — not cars.
