Rideshare driving is all about working smarter, not harder. And what’s smarter than taking advantage of driving incentives from Uber and Lyft? Today, senior RSG contributor Jay Cradeur shares his strategies for maximizing Lyft’s Power Driver Bonus.
Over the last six weeks, I have been driving exclusively for Lyft, primarily because they offer a superior bonus versus Uber. I am, after all, doing this for the money. Aren’t you?
During each of those six weeks, Lyft has paid me an additional $500 per week as a Power Driver Bonus for reaching certain milestones. That figure accounts for over 20% of my gross revenue, which is not an insignificant amount.
I have recently seen a few articles and apps that help drivers achieve more rides with surge (Uber) and Prime Time (Lyft) multipliers. However, as a percentage of my revenue, those extra earnings are dwarfed by the Power Driver Bonuses offered in some cities. This article will do a deep dive into some strategies and techniques anyone can use to maximize your weekly bonus revenue.
