Our Editor's Notes on Lyft's Phone-Based Customer Care

Lyft is a rideshare company that operates in the United States and Canada. The company has a particularly significant presence in the U.S., so it is not surprising that there are many people who try getting in touch with Lyft each and every day.

Like many Internet-native companies, Lyft offers only limited phone support, preferring to interact with riders via its app, social media accounts, or website. While it is possible to receive phone-based customer support, calls must be initiated through Lyft's app.

Why Do People Call Lyft Customer Support?

Riders call Lyft customer support for many reasons, including:

  • Driver complaints or concerns
  • Questions about credit card charges
  • Questions about the specific fare amount charged
  • Technical support
  • Questions about coverage in a specific area
  • Lost property questions
  • Lyft Pink program questions

Lyft offers a detailed website that offers information and answers to many questions. If you are frustrated about not being able to call Lyft directly, a visit to the website might be a good idea.

Best Practices for Calling Lyft Customer Support

Because Lyft does not have a phone number that you can call for customer support, you'll need to request help through their app. To do this, you'll need enter the app and answer a series of questions. While it may be possible to request a call if you have a major safety issue, Lyft support is via email only. If you do have an urgent safety issue, you may be asked to enter your cell phone number so that a member of the Lyft team can call you back.

The Lyft app also has an in-car safety feature that will connect you with ADT security professionals who can contact 911 on your behalf. This service has a silent option that signals ADT that you cannot speak. ADT will then inform local law enforcement of your car's location so that you can get help.

How Do People Feel About Their Calls to Lyft Customer Service?

Many people have expressed frustration at Lyft's failure to offer phone-based customer service and are unhappy with being primarily relegated to text and email-based support. However, some people have noted that Lyft's responses to concerns seem to come from human beings who don't simply offer scripted responses.

Media Reports

Some media reports have focused on Lyft failing to appropriately address driver safety concerns, even when a rider was potentially in danger. In one case, a driver became aggressive with a female rider who ended up having to jump out of a moving vehicle. She reported the incident to Lyft, yet was still charged for the ride.

What Kind of Issues Can Lyft Address Via Phone-Based Customer Support?

Lyft offers phone-based customer support to riders under very limited circumstances, primarily around urgent safety issues. If you are a rider in a Lyft vehicle and have reason to believe that your driver, or the driver's vehicle, presents a danger to the public, you should report the situation to 911 and then contact Lyft through its app-based help service. Request a call and explain what happened to the representative.

What Issues Can't Be Resolved Over the Phone with Lyft?

Other issues, such as customer service, complaints about drivers that aren't urgent or that affect public safety, credit card disputes or general questions must be handled via Lyft's app-based customer service.

What Do I Do if Unhappy with a Call to Lyft Customer Service?

If you end a call with Lyft customer support and still feel as though your concerns have not been resolved appropriately, there are several things that you can do to address the situation.

  • Safety situations are serious. If you feel that Lyft has not addressed your concerns and feel that an urgent issue of public safety remains, contact law enforcement in your area.
  • Try contacting Lyft again. A different representative may have more training or education and could help resolve your concern.
  • Contact Lyft through its social media platforms. A social media specialist may be more receptive and proactive. Text-based communications have the advantage of providing you with a record of your communication, which can be useful if you have to escalate your case.
  • If your city has a government agency with oversight over rideshare services, file a complaint with that agency. While agency workers may not be able to address your individual concern, enough complaints against Lyft or a Lyft driver may result in Lyft taking action to resolve the situation.
  • Try sending Lyft a letter via postal mail. While this is time-consuming and you may not receive a quick response, it may be an effective way of demonstrating that the matter concerns you and that you want to see it addressed.
