Can Lyft credit be used to tip drivers?

I was curious about this because a passenger recently inquired about it and I could not find the option on the app, nor could they. They tipped me through the app using their credit card but if this is an option, how can I show future passengers how to access it?

No, you can't do that. I already inquired about it. They said that this credit is for trips only and it tells the person who has the credit on the app that it can't be used for tips.

Nope, I wish it could be but they are strict on not allowing it. There is no option in the app. You can write in and request this be changed. If enough people do it, they might consider it.

I can't tell you how many times I have been asked this by people who don't want to tip me with their own cash. It isn't an option. It really should be though.

You would think you'd be able to but unfortunately not.

I'm not sure if Lyft has a dedicated suggestions area on their website. Maybe it's best to send an email or a Tweet requesting it. If enough people ask, they might just add it.

I actually wrote into them about this. I think it is something that should be accepted, at least right now when people are struggling with money.
