Lyft line is a type of Lyft rides
With Lyft Line, passengers who don't know each other can choose to share their ride.
Lyft line is more popular than ever, it helps connect people who both need a ride from the same neighborhood and to the same hotspot across town.
As Lyft driver you'll pick up separate passengers and drive them in the same general direction. Line is similar to a carpool. Passengers share a ride and save the money and you will increase earnings because with longer trips (the route are 15-20% longer on average) and less downtime between rides.
This service is an important compnent of Lytf's vision. Passengers benefit by paying a reduced fare (up to 70%), and drivers gain three things:
Remember, every pickup counts as a ride and you are paid for the time and the distance of the total ride. The more Line rides you give, the faster you can make progress toward milestones and weekly bonus.
You can earn a tip from each passenger on the route, and each ride counts toward your Power Driver Bonus if you have an eligible vehicle.
The navigation will automatically route you to each stop and determine the most efficient pickup and drop-off order. Even when you are already in an active Line ride, the app will look for nearby matches so using navigation ensures additional passengers aren’t waiting along the way.
Line rides have a purple 'Accept' button, and can add pickups at any point in the route, or not at all. Simply follow the app's prompts and use navigation to make sure you're always headed to the right stop.
