Age restrictions for transporting minors/students

Safety is our top priority.

Unaccompanied minors are prohibited from traveling with most carriers, including rideshare companies. A rider must be 18 to sign up for a Lyft account, but if a driver believes a passenger might be underage, the driver may ask the passenger to confirm their age.

The driver may also let a rider know that they will have to cancel the trip if the rider is indeed under 18. Children 17 and under are welcome to join with an 18+ year old rider in a ride, but they are not permitted to take a Lyft ride alone — even if requested by an adult. These terms apply across all Lyft products, including rides using Concierge.

You can find more information in the Lyft Business Terms of Service.
