    Ride Challenges

    A Ride Challenge is a multiple-ride bonus you’ll earn when you give a set number of rides within a set timeframe.

    How Ride Challenges work

    Ride Challenges don’t depend on acceptance rate, vehicle year, or peak hours. They're unique to you and based on your driving habits to reflect your driving activity.
    Example: Complete 10 rides between Monday 5 AM and Friday 6 AM to earn an extra $25.

    Eligibility and progress

    Ride Challenges are:
    • Personalized to you and your driving activity
    • Based on supply and demand in your region
    Because those factors change from week to week, your Ride Challenge offers may vary as a result. When you’re eligible, we'll email you upcoming Ride Challenges details. Keep an eye out for future offers crafted just for you.
    Ride Challenges are not offered every week.
    Participating in bonuses and incentives is always your choice. You aren't required to accept any specific request for services as a condition of maintaining access to the Lyft app or Lyft platform.

    Ride Challenge payouts

    Once you’ve met the Ride Challenge requirements, the bonus will be available in your earnings within an hour. You can cash out these earnings with Express Pay. If you don’t cash out your earnings, we’ll include it in your next weekly deposit. Keep in mind weekly deposits start Tuesday mornings and can take a few business days to process.


    Some Ride Challenges have tiers that allow you to earn more. Tiered bonus amounts are cumulative, meaning they add up. We offer one to five tiers that change in value each time you receive an offer.
    You can check your Ride Challenge progress in the ‘Earnings’ tab in your app.
    Example: You complete the Tier 1 challenge and earn $10. Then you complete Tier 2 and earn an extra $15. Once you complete both tiers, you earn a total of $25.

    Stacking bonuses

    It’s possible to have both a Ride Challenge and an earnings guarantee in the same week. Earnings from a Ride Challenge won't count toward your earnings guarantee.
