Lyft is known as a popular on-demand ride service, you request a ride when you need a ride. However, our gurus have been asked many times if it is possible to set up a round trip ride instead. While there is no formal round trip option on Lyft we do have an easy solution for booking a “round trip” ride. See the steps below.
As a side note, we only recommend following the below steps if your stop is going to be very brief as you will be expected to pay wait time while your driver waits to take you on your return leg. If your round trip is more spread out, then we simply advise that you request another ride when it is time to return. You will end up saving a lot of money this way!
As a general suggestion we advise that you fill your Lyft driver in on your plans and explain that you will only be making a quick stop in the middle of your ride. Driver’s are generally more than happy to do this; however, some drivers may get upset if you take too long at your stop. Driver’s can make more by accepting more rides, especially when they are trying to meet one of Lyft’s “promotional bonus requirements” and do not enjoy sitting around for too long only earning the wait time fee as compensation.
