Business profiles & Lyft for Business

Business profiles make expensing personal Lyft rides for work easy. Rides taken on business profiles let you include notes about each ride and send business ride receipts directly to your work email.

Create a business profile

If you don’t have a Lyft account:

  1. Head to Lyft business profiles to create an account. Enter your work email address, then tap ‘Next.’
  2. Enter your payment info
    • If you have a business card, use it here
  3. Download the Lyft app and create an account. After your account is created, you’re ready to take your first ride.

If you already have an account:

  1. Open the Lyft app, then tap your profile photo in the top left corner
  2. Tap ‘Settings’
  3. Tap ‘Business Profile’ in the app, then tap ‘Get Started’
  4. Enter your work email, then tap ‘Next’

  6. Tap ‘Next,’ then tap ‘Done.’ That’s it! You’re ready to use your business profile.

How to use business profiles

Before requesting a work-related ride, tap ‘Personal’ under the fare estimate. This changes your personal profile to your business profile and payment method.

You’ll have another chance to change between personal and business profiles on the ride payment screen after the ride ends.

Set up auto-expensing

When you set up auto-expensing, Lyft will automatically forward your trip receipts to the expense management system of your choice.

I charged a business ride to my personal account. What should I do? If you haven’t submitted payment for the ride yet, you can still switch profile and payment method on the payment screen after the ride ends.

After you’ve submitted payment for a ride, you can’t change the payment method.

Why isn't my promo code working? Currently, promos cannot be used on business profile rides because your employer typically reimburses you for these rides.

How do I update my business profile’s email or payment info?

  1. Tap ‘Settings’
  2. Tap ‘Business profile’
  3. Tap ‘Email receipts’ to edit your work email, or tap ‘Business payment’ to edit your payment info
