    Signing up

    You’ll need to sign up to start receiving delivery ride requests.
    To sign up:
    1. Click here
    2. Complete the Lyft Deliveries course
    After completing the course, you’ll start receiving delivery rides when they’re requested in your area.
    Keep in mind that you aren’t guaranteed delivery rides by signing up. Receiving delivery requests depends on demand in your area.
    You can't sign up to take delivery rides only.

    Giving delivery rides

    Tips for pickups:

    • Check the ‘Instructions’ section of the ride for details on how to pick up the package
    • If needed, call the organization by tapping the phone icon next to the pickup address
    • If you can’t find the package or contact the organization, tap the red triangle in the right-hand corner of the ride screen. This cancels the ride and lets us know that there was an issue with the pickup.
    Tips for drop-offs:
    • Submit a photo of the item at the drop-off location to confirm the item delivery is complete
    • If the customer doesn't or can't accept the delivery, return it to the original pickup location

    Delivery cancellation fees

    To make sure you’re eligible for a cancellation fee, confirm the cancellation by:
    • Waiting a few minutes after arriving at the pick up location
    • Calling the organization
    You can view the rate card for a delivery ride in the ‘Driving History’ tab of your Dashboard to check for this fee.

    Opting out

    If you decide Lyft Deliveries isn’t for you, it’s easy to opt out and only receive standard ride requests.
    You can contact us to stop receiving delivery ride requests.
