Power Driver Bonus

Heads up: To make way for our new Weekly Ride Challenge program, Power Driver Bonuses will no longer be available to some drivers. Weekly Ride Challenge is a personalized incentive that gives drivers the opportunity to earn more with no acceptance rate requirement, no peak hour ride requirement, and no vehicle age requirement. Learn more about Weekly Ride Challenges.

The Power Driver Bonus program rewards drivers with bonuses based on how much they drove in a week.

The basics

Drivers who successfully meet all Power Driver Bonus requirements can get additional earnings.

Power Driver Bonus resets weekly. If you qualified one week for Power Driver Bonus, you may not qualify the next week.

The Power Driver Bonus isn't always available to all markets or drivers. If you don’t see an email from us about your eligibility, don’t be discouraged. Even eligible drivers may not qualify for the Power Driver Bonus.

Continue meeting the requirements below, and we’ll let you know whether you qualify. Always check your Driver Dashboard to see your eligibility for the current week and other details.

  • Region: Power Driver Bonus must be available in your region
  • Vehicle: Cars must be a 2010 model or newer to be eligible for Power Driver Bonus. More than half of the rides in a week must be with an eligible vehicle.
  • Rides: Meet the ride requirements in your Driver Dashboard.
  • Acceptance Rate: Some offers may require you to maintain a 90% acceptance rate for the week

See your requirements and progress from the ‘Earnings’ tab in the Lyft Driver app.

Payment timing

We’ll calculate your Power Driver Bonus at the end of the week (Monday at 4:59 AM local time) and add it to your weekly deposit, which is started on Tuesdays. Heads up: depending on your bank, you may not see the deposit until up to seven days later. This happens when your personal bank is still processing the deposit.
