Lyft streak bonuses

Hey everyone! It’s my first time here, and I have a questions regarding Lyft’s streak bonus program.

I and my brother drive for Lyft, he has more rides than I do; over 100. I have 39. We both started last week. He started getting streak bonuses but I did not. Is this program based on number of rides? The website says it is based on ride availability but we live in the same city.

thanks for the help!

    It's possible there are other reasons you don't qualify for the promotion. Though, I'm just another driver and going off the information I have seen and my own experience, keep that in mind.

    Anyway, I believe new drivers aren't eligible for driving promotions. I don't recall the cutoff. It could certainly be that you need 100 rides or a month or more of driving. 

    For now I would double check that you're both in the same region as well. You only recieve bonuses based on the region you signed up as. You may for some odd reason be different. There are ways to look this up. 

    Other factors can be your rating such as number of stars, safety flags, or your acceptance rate. I know these effect Lyft Silver, Gold, and Platinum. I do not know how they interact with other bonuses, I've never been low enough in any categories to find out.

    I would keep driving for a few weeks, double check your region, and contact lyft support.

    Try this article to understand how exactly streak bonuses work. 

    "A streak bonus is awarded to a driver when they accept a required number of ride requests back-to-back. Right before a streak bonus is active, Lyft will send the driver an email or text notifying them that a streak bonus hour is active. Lyft will also inform drivers of the ride requirement and the bonus amount. "
