If you want to install and use the Lyft Driver app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Lyft Driver in the search bar and press Search. Click on Lyft Driver application icon. A window of Lyft Driver on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

    There are a couple things I’d like to see in this app, if possible: (1) a way to see the event guide (that shows up in Updates) while still in Driver mode. While in driving mode the other day, I tried to check out local events in the app, but couldn’t unless I turned off driving mode; (2) a way to input what time I needed to be at a destination myself so that the app doesn’t add passengers to my queue automatically if they’ll make me late. I just want to make sure I don’t get passengers who are going out of town or are going across town. Another thing I’d like to see is having the app ask me if I need a break after getting a certain # of passengers or driving a certain # of miles / kilometers. For example, last Saturday, I drove about half an hour to take 1 passenger across town, and a passenger was added to my queue as I got closer to the 1st passenger’s destination. The 2nd passenger’s destination was half an hour way in almost the same direction toward where I picked up the first destination. I was at a quarter of a tank of gas by the time I dropped off this 2nd passenger, and I kept getting passengers added to my queue each time I dropped someone off. I finally got a break, but it would have been nice if the app asked if I needed a break so I wouldn’t have to worry about leaving a passenger stranded, especially if a passenger requesting me already had at least 1 other driver cancel on them.
  • app slow to react when at red light or after making a turn

    By Dixon620
    Hi, I’m a driver in Baton Rouge, La & I really have problems when at a red light & the app shows to go straight 200ft then after passing thru the light the app says to turn right or left! This requires a U turn & confuses the rider & driver as we have heavy traffic in our town & this error sometimes requires driver to go 1/2 mile or more out of the way.. Also many times after making a turn the app is slow to react & indicate the next move causing the driver to miss the turn as he has already passed it.. What are your guidelines for customers who are not outside when driver arrives & when driver attempts to make contact the rider’s phone doesn’t answer or goes to voice mail or has not set up voice mail? One would think the rider would be available but I’ve had this happen many times.. why does the driver not get a fee when the customer is a NO SHOW or cancelled the ride when driver is in the rider’s parking lot? I have trouble turning off my app sometimes while moving which causes the page to slide over then the driver has difficulty focusing on the road causing driver to get a low acceptance rating.. we could use a bigger % also!
  • Lyft treats hardworking 5 star drivers like trash!

    By fvsclothing
    This company has no respect for the drivers they will steal from you every chance they get via cancellation fees and app payment issues etc. when you call to rectify the situation they disrespect and talk down to you in hopes that you will lose your temper so they can disconnect the call. If you don’t lose your cool they leave you on hold for as long as it takes for you to hang up so you don’t receive a survey not that responding to the survey makes any my case I stayed on hold for 4 hours!!. Lyft is by far the most ghetto trashy ride share company out there. I can’t believe they want to go public with the type of unsolved issues they have with their operation. They expect drivers to give 5 star service to passengers which I do while providing less than 1 star service to drivers in return. They don’t even have a working telephone number, they make it extremely difficult to speak with anyone unless you write an email which they selectively respond to if you are lucky. They know most drivers that work for them don’t have many other options so they exploit that to the fullest. I done nearly 4000 rides in only a year of working for them all while maintaining a 5 star rating but this means nothing to them you don’t even get a bonus, thank you, or even a thumbs up emoji. What a sad company.
  • Make our phones SHOUT; Take us ALL THE WAY HOME!

    By PCo-Jorge
    1. As a (now) three year driver, and Ambassador with Lyft, I am still amazed that the App does not incorporate an iOS “take-over”/cover function that notifies a driver that does NOT have the Lyft App noticeably open (in front) of any Incoming Request (i.e., nav units). Rather, a request will only appear -momentarily- as an incoming SMS, that a driver, when DRIVING, can easily miss. The App, when a driver is in Driver Mode, should take over the screen (as well as audio) of any iOS device, like an incoming call, alerting the waiting driver if any incoming request. And, needless to say, the driver should have On/Off control over such functionality. 2. I’ve always been annoyed by Lyft’s Destination Drive limitations, whether by miles or time, that seems to ALWAYS cut out (off) before a destination is achieved. Case in point, during this week’s drive times I had set my Lyft (and Uber) Apps to a Destination Drive location (home), and while Uber takes it all the way to my destination point, then ASKS if it’s OK to go offline, Lyft (as usual) CANCELLED the destination drive stating that they (Lyft systems) were sorry, that there were no rides to be had until I reached my end destination... even though I still had over “35 MILES” still to go!!!???

  • Google Map with Lyft Driver App

    By lg lyft driver
    Hi I’m Linda a New Driver with Lyft. I joined January however just got started driving Friday March 15th. I’m having issues with the Google Map within the Lyft Driver App. What’s in front of me on the Map should be behind me. Right now I’m looking at the Interstate in Front of me it runs North n South. The Google Map in the Driver App shows the Interstate beside me which is very confusing and I believe the reason pickups have canceled while I’m figuring out the direction to go! Any Suggestions? I’ve updated app and deleted the old for New App. Has not worked!
  • I need apple maps option please and bug fixes for IPhone X

    By Detective Astronaut
    I have been told within the app that something had gone wrong and to try again yet there’s nothing wrong, I would also really appreciate apple maps option/ integration through the app since so many users have an iPhone
  • Not worth the headache

    By phucklyft
    Have to be in exact spot to pickup riders, which is rarely an accurate spot, usually riders in your car before you get to the spot it says or wants you to go down a closed road and they charge customers $6.50 minimum and give you $3 you drive you use your car your gas your miles your maintenance to keep it up and clean sometimes wait an hour for it to go off for a customer can drive for hours and make less than you spend on gas on top of that people get you sick coughing or sneezing in your car they take all the money and give you peanuts for doing the work 🤮
  • Destination mode

    By CMR722
    Please bring back the arrive on time feature for destination mode. Also, please bring back the option to add an arrival time. It was great the way it was. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
  • Be On Time Filter

    By GLShoulders2
    So upset the filters have been made useless for me... I use to use the “be on time” filter to drive in my “window” of free time with the confidence I could be on time to my scheduled commitments... not driving this morning before work, today or any day, without this filter. I’m very disappointed by this change!!!! Why put drivers in a situation they might have to cancel on a rider due to distance???
