Lyft has started rolling out its new Lyft icon. Amp is a bright, oval-shaped device that sits on the Lyft driver’s dashboard, according to a blog post by Lyft.

The new icon consists of multiple LED lights that glow and change color. In order to find your driver more easily, the color in your Lyft app will match the glow of your driver’s Amp, according to the company.

“This way, you’ll know you’ve got the right car, even when there’s a crowd,” says the blog post.

Amp will be debuting in select U.S. cities in the next few months.
