    Driver Console and the Newsfeed

    Heads up: We recommend using Lyft Driver for the most reliable driving experience. Lyft Driver has the same info as your console but with driver-specialized improvements coming soon.
    We’ve brought together your driver earnings, Prime Time heatmaps, bonuses, and referrals into one home: the Driver Console. As part of the Driver Console, you can keep tabs on demand in your region without switching to driver mode. You’ll also receive local updates and customized info in a personal newsfeed.
