Note: At this time, we’re only offering Power Zones in a limited number of cities. We’ll let eligible drivers know whether Power Zones are active in their city.
Power Zones are a way to earn more as a Lyft driver. Power Zones are a simple bonus: give rides inside a Power Zone and get more per ride in or from Power Zones.
At the beginning of the week, we’ll send eligible drivers an email about upcoming Power Zones in their city. As long as we have active Power Zones in these cities, rides given qualify if:
- The rider is in the Power Zone at the time of request, or
- The driver is in the zone at the time of request
As long as either or both of these criteria are met, drivers are guaranteed to earn more for these rides. If Prime Time is higher than that minimum, we’ll make sure you get the higher amount.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is eligible? Currently we’re only offering Power Zones to a few of our drivers. If you’re eligible, we’ll let you know by email.
Where do I see Power Zone maps and times? View Power Zone maps next to the schedule of available Power Zone hours in the Driver Dashboard in the ‘Bonus Zones’ section.
What’s the difference between Power Zones and Prime Time? While both Power Zones and Prime Time show on your map, Prime Time is determined by real-time passenger demand and fluctuates through the day.
Power Zones are set up at the beginning of each week or weekend and guarantee that you earn more per ride. Power Zones also don’t impact what passengers pay.
When are Power Zones coming to my city? We’re glad you’re excited about Power Zones. Currently we’re only offering them in a few cities as we test certain parts of the program.
This helps ensure drivers in future cities will have the simplest experience possible. We’ll email you if we launch in your city.
