In some markets, driving to get Lyft’s Power Driver Bonus (PDB) is a good strategy to earn more. But does it work in all markets, and would it work for part-time drivers? Senior RSG contributor Will Preston outlines his strategy to get the Lyft PDB as a part-time driver in a medium-sized market.
As a part-time rideshare driver who drives for both Uber and Lyft, I have always found Lyft’s Power Driver Bonus to be out of reach. I never even got close to some of the metrics needed to qualify, so I never even considered it. However, as Lyft’s popularity appears to increasing, particularly among the younger crowd, I decided to try to qualify for the bonus one weekend and see what happens.
