Lyft is continuously trying to improve the experience of its customers and drivers alike. The latest add-on is a feature that will let lyft operators deal with scheduled pickups up to seven days in advance. So it will take the hassle away from being aware of a passenger’s planned departure minutes before.
In addition to that, Lyft will now provide access to “Power Zones”, these zones will are high-demand areas where they can “get paid more” during certain hours of the day. As of now, these are a total of 12 Power Zones in cities across the United States and more will be added. The zones are still undisclosed.
Lyft is bringing all of this together with a new driver-only application, suitably called Lyft Driver, which the company says will be full of resources for contractors. They’ll have easy access to information about scheduled rides, Power Zones and other things that may be added in the future. The service says the app will be rolling out to drivers over the summer.
