* New driver bonuses vary by city and are subject to change periodically.
TO SAVE TIME, YOU SHOULD KNOW
Promotions may change often but all referral codes are equal, so no matter who's referral code you sign up with, you're going to receive the same amount. Don't worry about searching around for the highest referral bonus; the only 2 things that will really matter will be which city you sign up to drive in and what promotion Lyft is running at that time.

Express Drive offers weekly rates on cars from Hertz and GM Maven. Lyft matches drivers with passengers who request rides through our app. When you rent with Express Drive, you can offset weekly cost by giving Lyft rides!
Applicants who select an Express Drive rental vehicle are not eligible for a referral bonus.
WHEN YOU CAN EXPECT TO RECEIVE YOUR BONUS
Bonus payments are added to weekly deposits either as one amount or on a per-ride basis.
For single-amount payments, both the referred applicant and referring driver will be notified by email when the referred driver has completed the requirements. Please allow 1-2 pay cycles for the full bonus amount to appear in weekly deposits.
For per-ride payments, bonus amounts are added to both the referred applicant and referring driver's weekly deposit with each ride the referred applicant completes (until the maximum bonus amount is reached). Use the Driver Dashboard to see if your referral bonus is added to your weekly deposits on a per-ride basis.
Please note that terms and conditions are subject to change.
