Let’s say you and your friends want to take a late-night trip to Vegas or a run to the border. You’ve been drinking, so you decide to use Lyft. How far can the Lyft driver take you? Is there a maximum distance for a Lyft ride?
The maximum Lyft distance is 60 miles
After 60 miles, the Lyft fare calculator stops. You can continue the ride, but the driver will need to stop the ride and have you re-request a Lyft. Drivers are only obligated to take you up to the maximum distance, so don’t be surprised if your driver boots you out of the car after the 60 mile limit. Remember — they need to get home too!
How much does a 60 mile Lyft cost?
Let’s use Los Angeles ride prices to figure out how much a 60 mile Lyft will cost you. At $1.55 per mile and $0.35/minute, you’re looking at a $120 fare. Cheaper than a cab, but still pretty pricey.
