About Power Zones

Power Zones are a way to earn more as a Lyft driver. It's simple: at the beginning of the week, we’ll send eligible drivers an email about upcoming Power Zones in their city. Rides given within applicable hours 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.

Power Zone earnings are capped at $195 per ride and will be included in the 'Bonuses' section on your receipt.

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.

Is Power Zone subject to Lyft's fees? Yes, any bonus drivers receive may be subject to Lyft's fees.
