How to become a Lyft XL driver

Passengers cannot request a specific driver or car, but they can use Lyft XL to be guaranteed a larger vehicle.

Become a Lyft XL driver

If you have a car that fits at least six passengers, then this is the program for you. Lyft XL rides are just like regular rides, but with more passengers and more pay.

Keep in mind that you are only approved to drive one vehicle on the platform. If your bigger car is not the one on your profile, follow these steps to switch your car.

New drivers with vehicles that qualify will be opted into Lyft XL automatically. If you have a larger vehicle (with at least seven seat belts total), and haven't been receiving Lyft XL requests, send us a message by selecting 'Contact Support' below to ensure that you've been opted in.

Lyft XL driver pay

Passengers pay a higher rate for Lyft XL rides, so you'll receive that higher rate. Lyft XL rates vary by region, so check the rates for your area on the Cities page.

Lyft XL ride requests

Lyft XL requests look the same as regular requests.

Any passenger can request a Lyft XL ride, regardless of the size of their group. Be ready to fill all of those seats, though! And, as always, you should never drive a group of passengers whose group exceeds the number of seat belts in your car.

It is not possible to receive only Lyft XL rides. In order to keep you busy, we'll still dispatch regular requests to you, but only if there aren't also Lyft XL requests being made.
