power driver bonus

  1. Seattle
    Did anyone else receive this email? Reaching 90% acceptance rate would be impossible for me so I never tried to get the PDB. Non-PT Lines/shared are for drivers that want to help the Lyft community, not themselves.
  2. Miami
    So I had been getting Power Driver Bonus every week for the last 6 months. I couldn't drive during most of August. When I started driving again, I have no PDB or any other incentives. I drove 2 weeks now and still no incentives. I called Lyft and they said they got rid of PDB for Miami and...

    It's gone as of the end of the month...

    Another thread mentioned an update coming to PDB on Lyft requiring no specific Acceptance Rate. I emailed them to see and got this interesting reply below.. funny thing is, from what they say below, it seems that 100% of people should still have SOME sort of PDB option. However for many...

    I just submitted this to the Lyft help desk: I can't wait to see what they say!

    So some people will have 200% power zones in Hollywood and some will have 30% power zones in Korea town- it hardly seems fair- I have to drive 10 miles away to get 100% when my hood is all 30, 40, 50 percent- and I seen other drivers that have more-

    Well, now that I have failed to hit the lowest tier of the PDB now for several weeks and I am not really trying, it would seem Lyft is now feeding me more rides in general. I am rarely online during weekday morning peak hours anymore, and I dual app and cherry pick all through bar hours on...

    For me, they change it about a week ago. It use to be 40 rides with 20 primetime gave a 10% off the 25% Lyft commission, and 60 with 30 primetime made 20%. But now they made it a cash lump sum for 45/20 $50, 65/30 $135 and another level for about 90 rides. Now this means for example, they...

    so. Doing the weak power driver bonus Lowest of them is the 80-40 for 185. Lol. (Sidenote: not everyone had their pdb cut. Some still have the lowest tier which is 75 still and apparently there are still people on a weekly gurantee of 1500. Awesome lyft. Just awesome. Throttling...

    So LYFT just increased the Criteria for Power Driving Bonus. In the Past to get 20% and 10% respectively you needed: 75 rides with 25 of which are at Peak hours (20%) 50 rides with 15 of which are at Peak hours (10%) That was then Changes to 80/25 for 20% Now they switched it again! It is...

    Ok, I made a little over $1,000 (gross) after everything for driving 36 hours and making the full 20% back PDB one recent week. I have never done this before. I drive a van and have get just a few Plus requests on average. I was extremely tired after a marathon Saturday session which covered 13...

    Bummer. First real attempt to get the 'new bonus': 6 rides shy and shut down! Tough to make that bonus when driving very part-time (AKA weekends). It was worth a try, but MEH. Over it.
  15. Indianapolis
    Got an email tonight from our friends at Lyft: 20% bonus requires 40 rides per week, with 15 of them during peak hours. 10% bonus requires 25 rides per week, with 10 of them during peak hours. 40 rides per week is at the top of my historical range, I have no idea how many of them have been...
