How to Contact Lyft Сustomer Service

The primary way to contact Lyft customer support is via their app or website. The company does not provide direct customer service email or phone number. They only provide an emergency hotline number (844)-554-1297 that you should only call in the instance of an accident, safety incidents, or citations. You could also fill a contact form on the Lyft website or contact them on their social media pages.

For in-app help, log in to your account and go to the Lyft Menu. Tap on “Help” and select the “Contact Us about any issue” option. You will be provided with prompts and at the end a contact form that you fill and submit. Ensure that you have the latest app version.

Although you cannot call Lyft customer service directly from the app, you have the option to request them to make a 911 call discretely on your behalf.
Go to your Lyft app and at the bottom select “safety tool” then the “get emergency help” option. If you are a rider, choose the “Alert 911 silently” option. Drivers can choose “Select call from ADT”. ADT (a private security firm that has partnered with Lyft to offer safety support) will call your phone. If you don’t pick up they will go ahead to call 911 and share your location.

When you choose the emergency option you will hear the following:

Thank you for calling Lyft.

If you need immediate assistance from the medical, emergency, fire or policy personal, please hang up and dial 911.

We are improving the help we offer and and now provide customer support in the Lyft app.

No matter what you need Lyft team numbers are here to assist you. Contact Lyft support team through the Help section of Lyft app. Please select Help in your app and choose the type of support you need.

You can also contact Lyft online at

Go to and scroll down to the bottom of the page. From the driver or rider menu, select Help. Choose the category you would like assistance with. You will be led through a number of drop-down menu prompts to clarify the issue. The last step will be to fill a contact form where you will provide your email address, subject of your issue, phone number, and category and description of the issue. You can also add an attachment and submit your query. Lyft will contact you either via phone or email.

The Lyft customer service representatives are highly engaging on the Twitter customer support page (@AskLyft) and Facebook page. If you post your complaint on their Twitter feed, you will be requested to direct message with further details. There is no option to post a review on their Facebook page but most customers post their complaints as comments on the most recent Lyft post. Often, a Lyft customer service representative responds asking that you message them directly.

My Lyft driver didn't show up but took my money from my account and I want to be refunded

Yesterday I was drop off from Louisville and the Miller bus had to drop the rider in dale Indiana and before I got off the bus I called a Lyft to take me to Owensboro.. So mean while calling Lyft the money came out of my bank account.

No Lyft driver and money was taken out of my account. So while waiting on the Lyft driver No driver and waiting in Denny's restaurant for four hours. So I called Lyft customer service and they wasn't helpful at all and I couldn't get none to come get me.. So I had to walk to Owensboro and I'm disabled and I have bad blood flow in my legs and plus I may say it was 90 something degree yesterday.

And my walk very exhausted. I need to be refunded and compensated much more the walk I had to take an hour from dale Indiana to Owensboro KY...

The driver did not get my text asking to meet me in the back of 5180 rather than Atherton St., since I use a Walker. I even have a photo of the back pick up area for the driver.

stars-rating stars-rating stars-rating stars-rating stars-rating

It suck *** He called me to as that he had to find a gas station!! That he got *** over by a person...

Because of him needing to find a gas station and I canceled the ride!!! That left me in a situation when I tried to get another ride it was double the amount that I just paid for a ride... I did not have the money it left me in a *** up situation!!! So I didn't have a pleasant experience with you guys!!!

Thanks a lot for *** me... For no reason!!

Well I called Lyft while getting off the miller in Dale Indiana. And doing so I called Lyft to pick me up in Dale Indiana at Denny's. Will the Money came out of my bank account but No Lyft driver. I called the Lyft driver at 11:39 on 05/14/2024. And I waited for hours and still no Lyft driver. So I had no choice but to walk to Owensboro KY where I needed to go. I'm disabled and have bad blood flow in my legs. So I want to be refunded and compensated for having to walk to Owensboro with bad legs and let's not forget about the 92 degree heat
