My Top Tips:
– Give your passengers a WOW Lyft experience. Keep your car clean, inside and out. Have various candy stocked in your car, people love sugar. Have a conversation about them, people love to talk about themselves. Lighten up and be happy, folks don’t like a Debby downer. Do what you have to do to get those good customer ratings.

-Open the Lyft app and drive on weekends at nights because this is when people are mostly out and about. Lyft emails all of the Lyft drivers in the area about events that are happening. Lyft also gives a list of places that you should be at certain times of the day to help you get your lyfts up.

-Learn about how to use the heat maps, some people say stay away from them. I think it really depends on the city you’re in. I’m in Philly, so when there is a heat map I go to it and always get rides. I don’t camp out in the heat maps but if I’m close I’m trying to get in the heat and get paid extra. Bottom line, hot spots can get you paid

-Get business cards from with your referral code on it. As a driver you’ll get a referral code, give out to everybody. Give it to all you’re family and friends and also spread it on social media. The more you spread it the more you’ll get paid because each time someone signs up for Lyft using your referral code. They will receive a free ride up to $20 and you will receive a $10 signup bonus, can’t be that with a bat.

-Lyft is great but sometimes it can be slow at times. I would suggest to sign up for a second ride sharing service as a back up. When Lyft gets slow you can turn on the other ride sharing company and fill in the blanks. You can even turn both apps on at the same time and go with whichever one hits first. Lyft has guarantee hours where they pay you a set rate, during this time don’t use both apps, just stay with Lyft during these times.

  1. I use 4 different GPS apps. Different apps, for different cities, and different situations. Knowing how to use multiple GPS apps effectively together can really help with $$$ and save gas.

  2. Camera enforced lights notifications is nice, but beyond that I just can't get into Waze. I turned off all the video game like icons in the settings, and that made it better but still had issues. It consistently tries to bypass lighted intersections by going on side streets, and in Los Angeles it is damn near impossible to make a left turn without a green arrow to protect the move. Its a gamble that it might save time, and I don't like to gamble. The odds are not in your favor. One time it took me on a side route, I got stuck at a train crossing for 10 minutes. Thanks Nate, as a new lyft driver its nice to get an experienced driver's point of view.Thumbs up and subscribing so I can stay up on the latest

  3. I'm new and a passenger told me about Waze, it's very informative and more in depth than Google to me. I live in Virginia and Drive in District of Columbia and Maryland, they have Red Light Cameras and Speed Cameras. Where I live we don't so a driver may not know they are going 12 miles over the limit, until 2 weeks later a ticket shows in the mail.
    I had 1 problem with Waze, when I pick up the passenger there is a lag or interference with the Lyft App, I confirmed the pick up but my screen became very slow. Again I'm in DC where I pick up passengers on the curb with 4 lanes of traffic, Not the time for a lag!
    I am switching back to Google in the Lyft app. I will keep Waze as a back up or try running both.

  4. riders talk on the phone and you act like a domb playing with the steering .

    why .
    i drive in san francisco .
    the taxi fare from sf to the airport is $70-$80+tip. uber far $20-$25 … i will talk all day .
    they have to stay quite not the driver . cuz we give them big service almost for free .

  5. I don't think people wants to get in a car that is "driveless", people like to know someone is in control plus they want someone to chat too, have a bit of a back and fourth with even if its a light coversation about bad weather

  6. uber WILL NEVER RELY ON DRIVERLESS CARS!!! uber looks at drivers as an expense. compare to driverless cars.
    uber would need to buy cars, gas, insurance, and maintenance costs, preventative and actual maintenance needs.
    the greed of uber will never allow them to use driverless cars….solely for the expense. they rely on their drivers to carry the total burden of expenses.
    good vids nate…just started uber in philly…wont be doing it much longer, I'm going to wait until they raise uberpool rates.

  7. I let wize play in the background… and I use Google Maps. that way I can hear about the camera lights! Wize has one fault… every time i get to the distention wize tells me turn into a alley! ?

  8. Hey Nate, I really enjoy your channel. I was wondering if you could do a video of the Lyft experience from beginning to end. When you turn on the app. to dropping off the customer? Also I was wondering how many miles u put on your car in a month? How much do u spend in gas for the month? And with the Summer coming up do you think Lyft is going to raise that bonus because right now, I think it's only at $200?

  9. Great video. Have you ever thought of using a satellite-based GPS? Garmin makes one designed for truck drivers (but you can chose an automobile vehicle profile, so it isn't worried about small streets or low bridges)… and it has real time traffic reports and alternate route features. No connection to apps, of course. But excellent road / lane info plus you can get a big, 7" screen.
    Thanks again for helping educate folks.

  10. Nate, I think "driverless" cars are eventually going to happen no matter what we do. The reason being, that eventually they will eliminate most of the traffic deaths that occur every year in the U.S. At some point it will not be acceptable that 35,000 people per year die in car accidents.

  11. I could do without the sports. I enjoy the lyft Uber topics better. hence why I subscribed. if I wanted to tune into sports, I'd subscribe to a sports channel. leave the other topics out of it, stay on topic….lyft and uber.

  12. Waze is interactive application. It is made for drivers to communicate between each other. Once you got into it hard, you will really love it. I think it is great idea for maps
