Driver Stories

I love the flexibility to set my own schedule. As my own boss, I have the option to do what I want, when I want, where I want. And I appreciate the opportunity to make that extra income so I have a rainy day fund that will help me pay for school. I like having control over my future — I see a bright future ahead for me.

My daughter recently had a baby and is returning to work. I need a flexible schedule so I can be a grandma and babysit my grandkids. With Lyft, I can be independent and set my own hours so I can be there for my family.

As a single mom, I need to be there when my daughters need me. DoorDash gives me that flexibility to work whenever I want and the security knowing that I can still work and support my family financially. Now I’m teaching my kids about work ethic and that a girl on her own can support and take care of her family and herself if she just tries. This is the best choice I’ve made in a long time.

Everyone talks about the American dream and being your own boss is a pillar of the American dream. Driving with Lyft gives me that independence. As a full-time student, I can go out on the road when I want, without conditions, and make enough money to pay my bills. That is so important, especially at this time in my life.
