    How to refer drivers

    Current drivers can get a bonus from referring new drivers to join Lyft. Each new driver can only be referred by one other person.
    There are two ways to get credit for referring new drivers:
    • Refer from the app
    • Referral codes
    Read below for more info on ways to refer drivers.

    Refer from the app

    From the Rider app:
    1. Tap 'Earn cash' for Android or 'Free rides' for iOS from the menu on the top left
    2. Tap 'Share' to see your code
    3. Follow the on-screen options to send your code
    From the Driver app:
    1. Tap the ‘Add user’ icon on the bottom right
    2. See info about any referrals available in your area
    3. Follow the on-screen options to send your code
    If a friend applies with your code, they must also meet the ride requirements. If approved, 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 into their app when signing up. You'll both also be eligible for any current promotions.
    If your friends click your referral link, your referral code should be automatically applied.
