Case studies


Lyft worked with Stripe to build Express Pay, providing drivers the ability to decide when they want to get paid out—typically within a few hours of a ride.


In 6 months, over 40% of all payouts on Lyft were done over Express Pay. Lyft was able to add value for drivers and attract more drivers to their marketplace.
