New! Refer a Lyft Driver Right in the App

Tell your friends. Referring drivers is one of the easiest ways to earn extra money — and now, drivers can do so directly in the Lyft app.

In just a couple of taps, drivers can send their referral code to anyone in their address book. Once that friend fulfills the referral requirements, both referrer and referee will score bonuses of up to $500.

Meet Sarah.

For example, let’s say Sarah referred three drivers. If her city’s referral bonus is at $500, she’ll get a grand total of $1,500. That’s not the only reason to refer: By growing her local Lyft community, Sarah’s helping us ensure there’s always a driver nearby. That creates a great experience for passengers, and increases the chance that they’ll loyally request even more rides.
