Our Commitment to Accessibility in NYC

As part of our commitment to help all New Yorkers enjoy the best of their city, we’ve made it even easier to request Access (wheelchair-accessible) rides. Now, you can request a wheelchair-accessible ride simply by entering your destination in the Lyft app, scrolling to ‘More’, and choosing Access. And to make your day even more hassle-free, you can schedule your next Access ride to lock in availability and price.

Access Ride Tips:

  • Most of our wheelchair-accessible vehicles are rear entry, which means the ramp will fold out from the back. Requesting your Access ride from a street corner will help ensure a smooth pickup.
