A seamless pick-up is one of the toughest things. Amp solves the pain point of the last 50 feet. This will be our icon, every car will have one.

— Ethan Eyler, Head of Ride Experience


Lyft's secret to smoother pickups and better, brighter rides

Lyft hired their first A.Team to improve and scale one of their most innovative products — Amp. The hardware lights up when drivers have a new ride request. For faster, easier pick-ups, it signals to the rider in their rider app the color to look for in their driver's amp. And it even welcomes riders by name, including a special message for holidays or events.
