About Lyft Lux

Lyft has a few ride types that give drivers with qualifying high-end vehicles the chance to earn more:

  • Lyft Lux: High-end, three* seats, the perfect way to add a little luxury and arrive in style
  • Lux Black: Premium black car service limited to only the most luxurious makes and models
  • Lux Black XL: Premium black SUV service with space for parties up to five* passengers

* As part of Lyft's Health Safety Commitment, the front passenger seat must remain empty.

How to qualify

The difference between Lyft Lux and Lyft Lux Black is which drivers and vehicles are eligible.

Both Lyft Lux and Lux Black rides require drivers to maintain a 4.85 or higher rating.

Losing this rating will result in the driver losing Lux status until their rating is again 4.85 or higher. Once this rating threshold is met, the driver's Lux status will be reinstated.

New drivers must give standard Lyft or Shared rides until they achieve a 4.85 rating or higher.

To qualify for Lyft Lux:

* Note:

  • Lyft Lux is no longer available in New York City. Drivers in New York City whose vehicles were Lyft Lux-approved before May 25, 2017, can still give Lux Black rides.
  • In Houston, Texas, the Lyft Lux vehicle model requirement is 2016 and newer. Houston drivers whose vehicles were Lyft Lux-approved before June 14, 2019, can still give Lux rides.

How to opt in to get Lyft Lux ride requests

If you have a qualifying vehicle and a 4.85 rating or higher, here's how to opt-in to receive luxury rides:

Before you start, make sure your qualifying vehicle must be set as your active vehicle. Log in to your Driver Dashboard to set your active vehicle and confirm your seat type.

  1. Open the Lyft Driver app, then tap your profile photo in the top left corner
  2. Tap ‘Driver Dashboard’
  3. Tap the ‘Vehicles’ tab
  4. Tap the arrow on 'Ride preferences'
  5. Select the ride types you want. Note that you'll only receive ride requests that you're eligible for and that are available in your region.
    • Accept all eligible ride types: all ride types your vehicle qualifies for
    • Accept Premium rides only: Lyft XL, Lyft Lux, Lux Black, and Lux Black XL rides
    • Accept Lux Black only: Lux Black and Lux Black XL rides

Here's what this looks like in the app:

Heads up: Using Lyft Lux-, Lux Black-, or Lux Black XL-only may reduce the number of requests you receive.

Drivers who opted to receive Lyft Lux or Lux Black requests only may still see standard Lyft requests where they can earn extra money. Skipping these requests won't affect your acceptance rate.
