Lyft Safe Travel Info
What's it like to ride with Lyft right now?
Lyft’s web site and corporate communications make it very clear that you should only be traveling in a ride share right now if you must.
It’s better to avoid any ride share while COVID-19 continues.
For those using Lyft for essential travel, the company has paused shared rides (where more than one party share the same vehicle). Lyft is also supplying cleaning supplies and masks to drivers.
Further, Lyft requires both drivers and riders self-certify they are symptom-free and will wear a face mask while in a Lyft vehicle.
A summary of Lyft’s latest protocols for both riders and drivers its Health Safety Program, which is comprised of:
- a personal health certification required for drivers and riders
- face masks being worn by both drivers and riders
- health safety education based on CDC rideshare guidance for both drivers and riders, available in the Lyft app
- distribution of cleaning supplies and masks for drivers
