How to refer drivers

Each new driver can only be referred by one other person.

There are two ways to get credit for referring new drivers.

Skip to:

Refer from the app

From the Rider app, select 'Earn cash' for Android or 'Free rides' for iOS from the menu on the top left. Then select 'Share' to see your code. You can follow the on-screen options to send your code.

From the Driver app, select the add user icon on the bottom right. You will see information about any referrals available in your area. You can follow the on-screen options to send your code.

If a friend applies with your code and meets the ride requirement, drivers will each get a bonus and riders will receive a credit. Lyft Referral Program Rules apply.

Share your referral code

Each driver has their own unique referral code. Your friends can enter your code directly into their app when they sign up, and you'll both be eligible for any promotions being offered.

If your friends click your referral link, your referral code should be automatically applied.
