SAFETY FIRST

Best strangers look out for each other

Random acts of kindness. Intentional acts of safety. That’s what sharing the ride is all about. Riders do their part by masking up (we’ll remind them before you arrive) and leaving their Big Night Out out of your car. If something goes wrong, we’ll take steps to make it right. We’re here to listen, and we’ve got your back.

CARING FOR EACH OTHER’S WELL-BEING

The rules of the road

Before driving, you must agree that you’ll wear a face mask as required by federal order, are symptom-free, and will follow CDC guidance related to COVID-19. If we get feedback that you’re not wearing a mask properly, you'll need to take a selfie with your mask on before driving with Lyft again.

Healthy ride guides

Our Air Care Guide for rideshare is based on new scientific research and the latest guidance from the CDC on how to improve airflow during the ride. And our expert-backed Clean Ride Guide, developed specifically for rideshare drivers, is designed to help you protect yourself and your riders from the coronavirus.

Accountability's a 2-way street

We proactively educate all riders and drivers on our Community Guidelines. Anyone who violates these guidelines or our Terms of Service may be permanently removed from the platform.

TAKING ACTION ON YOUR RATINGS
