Allegedly violated ToS, they refuse to explain how
GetHuman-ecom's customer service issue with Lyft from May 2018
Help with my Lyft issue
GetHuman-ecom's next move: find and follow the right step-by-step guide.
Lyft doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-ecom will need to dig through the advice provided by Lyft, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-ecom can let us know if they help or not.
If you don't see a guide here that matches the problem you are having, please see if Lyft has better answers for you: Lyft Help Center
If time is of the essence or you are lost, we partner with a BBB-accredited US-based company that has live experts you can chat with about issues like this for roughly $20-45. Chat now with an expert.
The issue in GetHuman-ecom's own words
I was trying to request a ride for my friends and I. ... My Lyft account says I'm locked out or my account is disabled. I've only used my account twice in the * months or so I've had it and had a perfect rider rating. I contacted support, and the first reply I got was "After investigating the issue with our risk team, I'm unable to re-open your account." Super unhelpful. I reached back out for a more human response and got back "Legally, we cannot release any of our internal processes except that we found your account to be violating our Terms of Service and you will no longer be able to use the Lyft platform." I don't understand how anyone could possibly violate the ToS in such a simple app: request ride, get ride, pay* where could a violation possibly occur?
They should either be able to explain how I allegedly violated their ToS to understand what not to do next time, or they should reinstate the account.
I've been a customer since Lyft came to my area last fall, but have only used the app twice, both times receiving perfect ratings.
Not a fix, but I started using Uber instead. It turns out they're cheaper anyway so it works out.
I have an issue with Lyft too
