The Lyft Rewards program rewards you for giving rides during busy hours.
For every eligible dollar you earn during busy hours, you can earn points with Lyft Rewards.
Lyft Rewards is divided into Silver, Gold, and Platinum tiers. Each tier comes with different rewards like discounted auto maintenance, roadside assistance, and TurboTax savings.
Unlock new tiers by earning points and maintaining your driving score/rating.
Go to the ‘Feedback and Rewards’ tab in your app and tap ‘Lyft Rewards’ for details on how Lyft Rewards works for you.

Requirements for each tier
Unlock new tiers by keeping your driving score and driver rating high.
The requirements for each tier are:
60% driving score to unlock this tier.
55% or higher driving score to keep this tier within a qualifying period.
No driver rating requirement.
Note: If your driving score/driver rating falls below tier requirements, your tier status will expire at the end of the period. Qualification periods begin on the first day of every month and end on the last day. If you bring your driving score/driver rating back up before the end of the month, you’ll keep your tier status.
Score and rating requirements
Driving score and driver rating are different.
Your driving score is the combination of your acceptance rate, cancel rate, and any flags on your account.
Your driver rating is based on how your passengers rate their rides with you.
You’ll want to keep both your score and your rating high to maintain your tier status.
To learn how to maintain a strong rating and driving score:
1. Open the main menu, then tap 'Support and Safety.'
2. Tap 'Learning Center.'
3. Scroll down to 'Rating and Tips.'
Qualification periods begin on the first day of the month. They end on the last day of the month.
Qualifying period 1: January 1 - January 31
Qualifying period 2: February 1 - February 28 or February 29, if applicable.
The points you earn during a qualifying period help you unlock tiers. Points reset at the beginning of each qualifying period.
Once you reach a tier, you’ll keep your status for the rest of the current qualifying period and the next qualifying period, as long as you continue to meet eligibility requirements.
If your driving score or driver rating drops below the requirement, you will lose your tier status. See the section above for tips on keeping your driving score and driver rating high.
