The Lyft community consists of people in need of rides and people ready to provide them, with all of this interaction going through a mobile app. Okay, not all of it. Before now, users have not been able to enter their desired destinations while requesting a ride, but the latest update addresses this by tucking the functionality in. This lets users tell the driver where they want to go before they arrive, getting the ride started faster and saving everyone time. And, as is especially true in this industry, time is money.

  • Add your destination while you wait for your ride
  • Detailed breakdown of your Lyft Credit balance

    Do drivers work for lyft or is it 3rd party drivers?

      It is ridesharing/carpooling. The way it works (based on their limited info on website) is, I sign up as a driver and they run a background and driving record check. If I clear it, I can then pick up people heading the same way I am going and they pay lyft a fee for the service (pickup, miles, etc. even if they cancel). Also, passangers can donate to the driver and drivers get 80% of the total donations received from passengers.
