Lyft has a variety of ride modes to fit your travel needs.
Some ride modes are only available in select cities. You’ll see all available modes in the app when selecting a ride. For fare estimates and a list of available ride modes, see our Cities page for riders.
Lyft Shared: Share a car with riders headed in the same direction at a discounted price. You can get a bigger discount when you request in advance.
Wait & Save: Lock in a lower price when it’s busy — it’s our most affordable personal ride. Once you request a ride, there's a longer wait so we can pair you with the best driver for your route and pickup spot. Wait & Save is currently a pilot and is not available in all markets.
Priority Pickup: Get a faster pickup at a slightly higher price.
Preferred: Standard Lyft ride for up to 3* riders. Take a ride with a top-rated driver in a newer, spacious car. With Preferred, you can let your driver know if you'd like a quiet ride, have bags or luggage, or your desired vehicle temperature preference. Preferred is currently a pilot and is not available in all markets.
Wait & Save and Priority Pickups may not always be available, depending on how many drivers are nearby. Wait & Save, Priority Pickups, and Preferred rides are currently only available in some areas.
