Introducing Lyft profiles, a new feature that gives passengers and drivers the option to share fun facts about themselves and discover mutual friends and interests.

Profiles launches first for iOS users, with Android soon to follow. Filling out a profile is optional, so you can share as little or as much as you want.

Every profile comes with space for a hometown, favorite music, and mini bio. We chose hometown because we know roots grow deep. We added favorite music because music is both a universal and personal connector. As for the open “About me” section, that space we leave entirely up to you. Driver profiles include extras such as star rating and ride count.

In cities with Lyft Line, we’ve heard countless stories of Line passengers connecting over shared interests or acquaintances. Profiles makes unearthing these small-world connections even easier, and is a big step toward our vision of reconnecting people and communities through better transportation.

Update to the latest version of the app to fill out your profile.
