Lyft has announced a pilot program with Hertz. Lyft drivers can rent Hertz vehicles at special daily, weekly and monthly rates, according to a Lyft blog.

Currently, the pilot program is live in Las Vegas for Lyft drivers.

No long-term lease commitment will be required for drivers to rent Hertz vehicles on-demand and earn money as a Lyft driver, says the report.

Additionally, Lyft has a new partnership with Shell Fuel Rewards. With the rewards program, the more you drive, the more you save. Based on the number of rides per week, a Lyft driver can earn a discount from 3 cents per gallon to several free tanks per week, according to the report.

Over the next few months, this pilot program with Shell will take place in several markets; it’s expected to roll out nationally to 12,500 Shell stations by early next year.

    Lyft drivers basically operate as taxis. Driving constantly and running up heavy mileage and wear and tear on the vehicles. Hertz is going after this customer? Enjoy!!
