Is your car in the shop or are you in between vehicles and need to get on the road quickly? If you’re driving for Lyft, there are a few rideshare rental car options. You can rent a car via a Lyft hertz rental or thru Lyft express rental. This is important since Lyft car rental or a rideshare rental, in general, can be good to have as a backup option regardless of if you decide to use it full time or not. This also answers the question about can you do Lyft with a rental car. In this video, guest contributor Patricia covers the process she used to rent a car using Lyft. This video on rideshare has been produced by The Rideshare Guy.

  • LMAO 😂 Just don't . You don't wanna be an homeless whos working 7 days a week.
    Plus , personal milages are not really accurate .
    On Lyft for some reasons trip distance are differ from actual distances . They says it's because of GPS issues . So you contact with Support agent most of them try to deny your fare adjustment requests . Funny thing is it's always it's shorter than actual trip distances. LoL
    So , now you know who is doing this trick on your each trips . You drove but then you don't get paid for that distances correctly ? 😱

  • In north CA as of now, Lyft charges $.15 each mile and $.38 for non Lyft miles. Long story short, I made $1,100 and only got $600 after gas. Then I made $1,700 but Lyft took $500 + gas which left me with $1,000. BTW, they charge tax on your miles used. Becareful driving home on filter destination for $.15 each mile cuz the app will go offline on you without warning then you will be charged $.38 each mile for going home or almost home. Do it only if last option.

  • Lyft used to take a larger cut on each ride if you drove a rental (lyft express). It was a bad deal. The alternative is to depreciate your own car at warp speed, so also not a good deal. Basically, only do it for a very short time to pick up some extra cash in a car that's already worthless.
