I couldn't find anything about this on the lyft website. I drive in California but was wondering if I could drive for Lyft (or the dark side) when in different a different state.

I'm in California also. I used to split my time between two homes in Palm Springs, and Las Vegas until 2010 -- but still go to Vegas often. With the recent approval of Lyft and Uber in Nevada -- I thought about dual driving in both. I asked LYFT -- they said NOPE, can't do it. HOWEVER if I wanted to permanently move my account from Palm Springs to Las Vegas they would do that -- ONE TIME!

On the other hand -- I'm not sure it would be stopped -- I have a friend who vacations out of state and she turned on drive mode in the state she was in. She didn't take any fares as she wasn't sure of the area.

I tried to drive in a different state and got a small window, "You are not authorized to drive in this location".

Even with a new phone number, you'll get flagged on the background check or the vehicle ID or both.

I was going to spend a month in the South this winter, don't know why I can't drive a few days while I'm there... oh well.

i would prefer it be not allowed to drive outside your market. here in charleston, every ******* in columbia drives down here on the weekend because unless there's a home game at usc, there's no reason to drive in columbia. it does a diservice to the travelling public and local drivers. HEY COLUMBIA DRIVERS: STAY THE **** HOME IN THE ARMPIT OF THE SOUTH.

read somewhere you can ride share if you are driving across country so how is that different than driving in another state? Here in Va. I know drivers that go to DC on week ends to make money
