Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Driver in Lyft


The salary wasn’t enough, you work all day sometimes and you make less than $70, and for me that’s not enough here in Washington dc area, that’s why I wanted to find a better job

The flexibility is your saving grace

Lyft knows that their employees value flexibility, being that most of their drivers have families and others jobs, and to be honest they take advantage of that! Overall, it's very disappointing that a multi billion dollar company can't even pay their driver $1 per mile!


Flexibility, be your own boss


Long hours, low pay, gas and mileage

Eeking out a living

Working for Lyft is sort of odd. You can make good money in driving nights and weekends in the summer, but the rest of the time? Not much. And now, with gas prices being INSANE, there isnt really any money to be made. Thanks, Biden Administration!
