    Ride Challenges

    Ride Challenges allow you to earn more by completing a certain amount of rides in a set amount of time.
    See your progress toward Ride Challenges in the ‘Earnings’ tab on the home screen of the Lyft Driver app.
    We’ll email you about any upcoming Ride Challenges you’re eligible for shortly before the challenge begins. There’s no peak-hour requirement, no minimum acceptance rate, and no car year requirement. Just give the number of required rides within the time frame to earn more.

    How it works

    Ride Challenges are personalized for every driver based on individual driving history in addition to passenger demand in your region. Because the offer is personalized to you, offers can vary depending on your prior activity.
    Ride Challenge offers may not be available every week and are not available in all regions.
    Example Ride Challenge: Complete 10 rides between Monday 5 AM and Friday 6 AM to earn an extra $25.

    When earnings appear

    Once you meet the requirements, the bonus will be available in your earnings and eligible for Express Pay.
    If you choose not to use Express Pay, you’ll receive the bonus in your next weekly deposit.


    Ride Challenges may have additional tiers that allow you to earn more. Tiered bonus amounts are cumulative, meaning they add up.
    Example: Let's say you complete the Tier 1 requirements and earn $10 and then complete Tier 2 requirements and earn an additional $15. Once you complete both tier requirements, you earn a total of $25.
