Peak Hours

Peak hours are the busiest times for Lyft — when we consistently need additional drivers on the road to satisfy demand.

Rides count as peak rides if the ride was requested during a peak hour. Peak hours aren’t necessarily the same as Prime Time, which can happen at any time.

Peak hours vary by region

Since not every city has the same levels of demand, rush hours, and events, peak hours vary. You can view peak hours in your region in the In-app Driver Console and Driver Dashboard.

Peak hours can change each week

Lyft passengers are creatures of habit, so peak hours generally stay the same each week. That said, we keep our finger on the pulse of local demand and regional events, so you may notice that peak hours change every once in a while. Keep an eye out for changes in the In-app Driver Console and Driver Dashboard.
