Can You Do LYFT With a Pickup Truck?

Lyft may be best known for its ride-sharing services, but the company has also recently ventured into other transportation options. One of these is pickup trucks, which have been added to Lyft’s lineup of vehicles in recent months.

So can you do Lyft with a pickup truck? The answer is yes – as long as you meet the company’s requirements.

The first requirement for using a pickup truck on Lyft is that it must be a four-door model. This means that single-cab pickups, such as those often used for commercial purposes, do not qualify. Lyft also requires that the pickup truck be no older than 15 years and no newer than 2020.

The second requirement is that the vehicle must pass a vehicle inspection by an approved Lyft mechanic. This inspection includes checking the brakes, suspension, tires, and other safety features to make sure they are in good working order. The mechanic will also inspect the interior of the vehicle to make sure it is clean and free from debris.

The third requirement is that the driver must have an active auto insurance policy with at least $1 million in coverage. This ensures that passengers will be protected in case of an accident while riding in your pickup truck.

Finally, Lyft requires all drivers to have a valid driver’s license and a clean driving record. Drivers must also complete a background check before they are allowed to drive for Lyft.


So can you do Lyft with a pickup truck? The answer is yes – as long as you meet the company’s requirements of having a four-door model made between 2005–2020; passing an inspection by an approved mechanic; having an active auto insurance policy; and having a valid driver’s license and clean driving record.
