Summer 2021 is in full swing and life is getting back to normal. Between businesses reopening, and social calendars filling up, people need to get places again.
Demand for rides from ride-sharing apps has been way up recently, compared to where it was a few months ago, but drivers on the road are still down. If you've been looking for a way to make more money, now is time to take advantage of being a Lyft driver.
Why should you consider driving with Lyft? Besides the opportunity to be your own boss, you get to help out those in need of a ride these days. That means you only work the hours that work for you. Driving for Lyft is ideal if you need your schedule to be flexible. Plus, drivers in New Orleans have been earning up to $37 per hour lately*, so you can feel confident that your time will be well spent.
Lyft also equips their drivers with the features they need to make the most amount of money in the least amount of time. Drive smarter with features that show you real-time maps of hotspots and demand forecasts, so you can always make sure you're in the right place at the right time. Demand for transportation has never been greater, so you won't be waiting for passengers for long.

Another great benefit when you drive for Lyft, there's no waiting for payday. They believe that your money should be available to you as soon as you earn it. You can cash out your earnings at any time using the Express Pay feature, no matter the amount (just pay the $0.50 transfer fee).
Dealing with COVID may make you unsure about getting started, but safety for both drivers and passengers is extremely important to Lyft. They prioritize safety, including making masks mandatory for both drivers and riders, and providing access to PPE as well as cleaning supplies with no markup from their online store. Even if you accept a ride, they give you the control to cancel or decline any ride you see fit.
Interested in getting started? Applying online takes as little as ten minutes. All you need to provide is:
- A valid driver's license
- Proof of insurance
- And a 4-door vehicle**
From there, Lyft will conduct a background check, and you'll be notified if your application has been approved. Once approved (which usually takes 48-72 hours), you can begin working as soon as you like.
If the only thing stopping you is not owning a car, then don't worry—you can rent one through Lyft's Express Drive program. There's no long-term contract, and you can keep your rental for as long as you need it.
Becoming a Lyft driver is a no-brainer right now. Demand is high and competition with other drivers is low, so the time to apply is now.
