With the end of Lyft’s Power Driver Bonus comes something new: the Weekly Ride Challenge. What is the WRC and how could it impact drivers? Senior RSG contributor Jay Cradeur covers what the WRC is, how it’s different from Lyft’s old PDB and how these new changes may impact drivers.
Recently Lyft announced the end of the Power Driver Bonus. However, we did not know what would take its place. We knew there would be no car requirements for this new bonus, which means even if you have a car older than 2011, you could still qualify for the bonus.
We knew that the concept of Peak Hours and requiring drivers to drive at specific times of the day would no longer apply. We also knew that the bonus would change on a weekly basis, according to Lyft, based on “driving behavior, and current market conditions.” On August 27th, Lyft let us know what they had to offer.
