Lyft provides primary insurance from leading insurance carriers, at no cost to the driver. Our drivers get: primary liability insurance up to $1M per occurrence, contingent collision insurance for drivers who carry collision coverage on their personal auto policy, and coverage for bodily injury caused by uninsured/underinsured motorists.
Drivers rate passengers after each ride, so you’ve always got a say. We also require passengers to provide valid credit card information for identity verification purposes.
· WHAT ARE LYFT’S ACCESSIBLE VEHICLE REQUIREMENTS?
Your vehicle must be equipped with a lift or ramp to accommodate passengers traveling in electric or non-electric wheelchairs, must display a placard certifying compliance with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (such as the NMEDA Quality Assurance Program seal), and must have 4 securement straps and a lap and shoulder belt in proper working condition to secure a passenger traveling in a wheelchair.
The vehicle must also have additional passenger seats available to accommodate passengers not traveling in wheelchairs.
O WHAT ARE THE FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARDS?
To ensure public safety, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issues regulations that all motor vehicle and mobility manufacturers must follow called the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). To confirm that your accessible vehicle meets these requirements, check your vehicle for an adhesive placard or seal from your auto manufacturer certifying its compliance. This is typically found on the edge of the door.
§ I ALREADY HAVE A JOB, SO CAN I JUST DRIVE A FEW HOURS IN MY OFF-TIME?
Absolutely. You choose when you drive, as long as it’s within Lyft’s operating hours. Some drivers make more than $800 just driving Friday nights and weekends.
§ HOW DO I GET PAID?
Drivers get 80% of payment from passengers. Money is deposited into your account each week.
§ IS LYFT SAFE?
§ Our community’s safety is our top priority. We run extensive background checks on drivers, provide up to $1M excess liability insurance per occurrence, and designed numerous safety features into our app. Passengers must provide a valid credit card and phone number for identity verification purposes. Drivers and passengers also rate each other at the end of a ride, so that we’re always upholding our high community standards.
