How to create an individual Business Profile

Lyft Business makes traveling easy for individual passengers who travel for business frequently.

You can create an individual Business Profile — meaning you are not tied to an organization's Lyft Business account — to take advantage of Lyft Business features. 


Follow these simple steps to get your Business Profile set up:

  1. Create your Business Profile
  2. Add a payment method
  3. Automate expensing
  4. Link your work email
  5. Take a business ride

 

  1.  Create your Business Profile


    Visit www.lyft.com/rider/business and create your Business Profile using your work email.
    If you need to create a Business Profile under an organization's Lyft Business account, you should have received an email invitation from the organization that you'll use to complete your Business Profile set up.
    Your Business Profile will connect to your existing Lyft account. If you do not have an existing Lyft account, you'll be prompted to create one before creating your Business Profile. You can manage and switch between your Personal Profile and Business Profile without having to sign in and out of two separate Lyft accounts.



  2. Add a payment method

    Access your Business Profile in 'Settings' in your Lyft app. Tap ‘Business payment' and add a credit card or other preferred payment method accepted by Lyft.

  4. Link your work email


    Enter your work email address. If your work email is different from the email address tied to your expense account, use the email address tied to your expense account. All business ride receipts will be automatically sent to the inbox of the email address associated with your Business Profile.

  5. Take a business ride


    When requesting a ride, tap ‘Personal’ to switch to 'Business’. At the end of the ride, you can enter in an expense note.
