The ridesharing giant emailed its drivers of the new referral program with Amazon, where it is encouraging Lyft drivers to apply for jobs at Amazon warehouses. These drivers are recommended to take jobs with Amazon's own grocery and package deliveries platforms. Why is Lyft doing this?

Well, Uber has its own food delivery platform in Uber Eats -- where Lyft, does not. This has seen Lyft team with Amazon over the new job referral program, even after Lyft announced that it would begin expanding its delivery network to help out in the delivering of coronavirus test kits, medical supplies, and meals to the elderly and vulnerable ppopulations.

Lyft has said that over 100,000 drivers have signed up for the COVID-19 coronavirus network delivery expansion, with the ridesharing giant teaming up with 8 different Medicaid agencies in order to help people get access to medical services such as dialysis, chemotherapy, and prenatal care.
