How to pay for a Lyft ride

This is your opportunity to rate your Lyft driver and pay for your ride.

If you don't rate and pay within 16-24 hours of your ride, then the ride cost is charged to your default payment method automatically and your driver won't be rated. You'll receive an email receipt once payment is submitted.
