Make money while you learn the ropes as a Lyft driver by encouraging your family, friends and social media associates to become Lyft drivers. Lyft has provided several ways for its drivers to make money and referring new drivers gives you the ability to take advantage of a very lucrative referral opportunity.
The list of cities below is offered only as a sample of the driver referral payouts that Lyft has offered its drivers in the past. These referral incentives change frequently. Any driver you refer will find out the amount of the bonus currently offered during the application process. These bonus incentives are subject to Lyft Terms of Service.

If you’re a Seattle driver, could you use an additional $1400 per month by simply referring 1 new driver per week to Lyft? Or if you’re an Atlanta driver, what could you do with an extra $2000 per month earned from making just 4 referrals per month? Or if you’re a San Francisco or Boston driver, I’m sure an additional $3000 per month would come in handy from referring 4 new Lyft drivers. Keep in mind that these are double sided bonuses which means both you AND your referral will receive the same bonus!
The amounts above are for simply referring 1 new driver per week. What if you referred 2, 3, 5 or even 10 new drivers per week? The opportunity to make money through referring new drivers to Lyft in addition to what you will earn by transporting Lyft passengers is huge.
NOTE: These referral bonus amounts change frequently. They may be higher or lower at any given point in time and vary by the demand for drivers in any given city. All new driver applicants will be made aware of the bonus available to them during the application sign up process.
I’d like to make money as a Lyft driver AND take advantage of the bonus!
Your first step is to click HERE to see the cities and countries where Lyft is currently available. After locating your city, click HERE and complete the “Apply Now” section on the Lyft website. Underneath the phone number box be sure to place the referral code “GREGORY37524” (if it hasn’t automatically been added in the box). After you’re approved as a Lyft driver, you will be required to complete a certain amount of rides during a specified number of days of your eligibility as a driver. The number of rides required and the number of days to complete these rides varies from city to city. Once you complete the required number of rides, you will receive your referral bonus.
