“Our drivers are the very foundation of our operation. This new center will be an invaluable tool as we work to provide drivers with all of the resources they need to meet, and exceed their own expectations, as well as those of their riders,” said Ariel Meyer, Florida Regional Director of Lyft. “Our drivers’ feedback is incredibly important, and it is thanks to their input that we saw just how critical in-person, bilingual assistance really is. We look forward to seeing how the fleet embraces this new resource and working with them to further refine its offerings.” 

The Lyft Hub Miami is located at 4201 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33172, and available to all drivers.
