Openbay+ Now Available to Lyft Drivers

The subscription service can help increase net earnings with cost savings on automotive services.

Openbay announced its Openbay+ subscription service is now available to Lyft drivers, helping them increase net earnings with cost savings on automotive services.

Openbay+ combines pre-negotiated discounted pricing for all automotive services with a curated nationwide network of automotive service professionals that deliver quality service. Combined with Openbay+’s technology, Lyft drivers can achieve significant cost savings on automotive services, thereby increasing their net earnings, according to Openbay.

Additional benefits of Openbay+ include taking the friction out of finding and booking service. Openbay+ will match a Lyft driver with a professional that can provide the service for their year-make-model vehicle. Openbay+ delivers multiple competitive price estimates upfront for a driver to select from, the company says. Drivers can book a service appointment online right from their mobile device.

A banner to opt-in to the Openbay+ program is present on all Lyft driver accounts not already on Openbay+. An explanation of the Openbay+ program is provided to Lyft drivers prior to signing on. Key updates to Openbay+ are significant savings for automotive services up to 25%, no credit card required to enroll in the program, expanded coverage areas throughout the U.S., and the removal of the online payment method (e.g. credit card) to book service, according to Openbay.

The updated Lyft driver dashboard contains a search-like field to select from 1,000s of services. Common services are available front and center to facilitate the service selection process.

The Openbay+ user interface displays upfront pricing to include retail price, discounted price, and savings (displayed in dollar amounts). Shop amenities are on display for each shop that delivers a price estimate. Lyft drivers may be seeking certain amenities that meet their needs to get back on the road quickly.

Lyft drivers can sort on customer ratings / reviews, distance, and price to find the service center that best meets their needs, with the most favorable selection being distance.
