Your Quick Guide to February Earnings


The biggest date night of the year gets Lyft passengers to popular restaurants and out on the town. Daytime rides on Thursday are expected to be normal, but requests will start increasing after 5 PM as dinner reservations and special plans kick off, all the way through 2 AM when passengers are heading home after a night of chocolate, drinks, and good times.


Now that you’ve got the best times to drive, here’s where you can expect more passengers requesting rides on these days:

  • Bars: During Sunday’s game, prepare for pickups and drop-offs at popular sports bars as locals travel in packs to stake out tables — and big-screen TVs — all over the city.

  • Residential neighborhoods: For fans that want to avoid the crowds and table grabbing, house parties and small get-togethers are more their speed. That means more ride requests for you (no one wants to be boxed in someone’s driveway) and maybe a few added stops at the store if an appetizer gets forgotten. We’ve been there.

  • Restaurants and cocktail lounges: Valentine’s Day gets couples and friend groups out to share a nice meal and cozy cocktails together, so expect your city’s best restaurants to be the go-to for riders. And don’t be surprised if you have to make a pit stop at the flower shop on the way!

No matter what you're driving toward, we'll help you get there.
