WE’RE COMMITTED TO DRIVER SAFETY

Safety is our top priority.

Find out how we’ve got your back, before, during, and after the ride when you’re driving with Lyft — safety is built into every stage of your journey.

PEACE OF MIND BEFORE THE RIDE

Visit your local Hub

Before you start driving, come visit a driver Hub near you for an in-person orientation and to get your questions answered.

Holding our community to a higher standard

We require every rider and driver to agree to our Community Guidelines before they can take or give a ride with Lyft. We believe every ride should be a welcoming and safe space — for everybody. Anyone found in violation of our guidelines can be removed from the platform.

Complete our Community Safety Education course

You’ll need to complete a course we developed in partnership with RAINN, the largest anti-sexual violence organization in the US. Once you complete the course and a streak of 5-star rides, you’ll earn a one-time bonus.

Know who you’re picking up

View your passenger’s name, photo, and how other drivers have rated them before you accept a ride. If you ever feel uncomfortable, you can decide to not accept the ride. Your car, your choice.

DURING YOUR RIDE

Safety tools at your fingertips

CALL 911 EASILY

Get help quickly in the event of an emergency.

If something looks unusual about a ride — like a car staying at a drop-off for a long time — you’ll hear from us asking if you need help with the option to request emergency assistance.

Contact info stays private

We’ve anonymized phone numbers in the app so you can communicate with passengers for smoother pickups — without sharing your actual number.

Your passenger ratings matter

If you rate a passenger three stars or less, we’ll make sure you aren’t matched together again. If you flag a passenger for violating our Community Guidelines, they’ll be required to complete a Community Safety Education course and may be removed from the Lyft platform.

Rest easy with our insurance

Our car insurance offers four types of additional coverage — from the moment you switch into Driver Mode until you drop off your last passenger of the day.
