View the rules and restrictions of your Lyft Pass

Before requesting a ride, it’s important to understand the rules for your pass so you know when it’s eligible to use. To view the restrictions, tap the menu icon in the top left corner of your app and tap Promos. Look for the Lyft Pass name in your list of promos to see the details. Restrictions can be combined and include:

  • Location restrictions with designated pickup and drop-off locations, 
  • Time and day restrictions where the ride can only be taken during specific times on specific days
  • Ride type restrictions where the ride must be taken under a valid ride type for Lyft Pass to apply

After confirming the restrictions of your Lyft Pass, tap the menu icon in the top left corner of your app and tap Get a ride to begin.

  1. Tap Search destination and enter the name or address of your destination
  2. Select your destination from the search results. If your destination is a venue, you may also have to select a designated pickup spot at that destination
  3. Select a ride type. If your Lyft Pass had a ride type restriction, make sure to choose a valid ride type on this screen
  4. Before tapping Select [ride type] to proceed to the next screen, double check that your Lyft Pass will apply to your ride by making sure the bottom left corner says Personal [Credit card XXXX] + Promo
    • If it says Business [Credit card XXXX], tap Business [Credit card XXXX] to switch from business profile to personal profile. Lyft Pass only applies to rides taken under your personal profile
    • If it says Personal [Credit card XXXX], Lyft Passis not applying. Check the restrictions of your Lyft Pass again and make sure you are taking a valid ride.

  5. After confirming that Lyft Pass is applying successfully, tap Select [ride type]
  6. Review your ride once more and tap Confirm and request when ready
