Tips For Riding Smart with Lyft

  • Verify your ride by making sure the license plate number, driver information, and car make and model match what you see in the app.
  • Share your location and route with a friend or loved one from within the Lyft app so they can follow your ride in real time.
  • Follow the Lyft vehicle on GPS via the app.
  • Ask the driver to say who they are picking up.

Additional Program Information

  • If you request a ride that doesn’t meet the criteria, you will not see the discount shown on your ride confirmation screen and you will pay out of pocket.
  • If your ride costs more than the $10 discount, you will pay the remaining cost out of pocket.
  • Prices may be impacted by distance, traffic, time of day, special events and prime time surcharges.
  • The benefit will roll over monthly, with 10 new rides at $10 off loaded into your app. Unused rides expire at the end of the month, and do not carry over.
