Home

If you used the Lyft smartphone application to give rides to passengers in California between May 25, 2012, and July 1, 2016, you could get a payment from a class action settlement.

  • UPDATE: The Settlement Administrator issued payments on March 21, 2018 to class members who submitted their claim form by January 19, 2018.

    If you elected to receive your payment by ACH, your payment issued using your payment issued using either the account information you provided to the Settlement Administrator or the account information that was provided for you by Lyft, depending on what you requested when you filed your claim. An email was sent to the email address you provided that contained information about how your payment was determined.

    If you elected to receive your payment by check, your check was mailed to the address you provided. Information regarding how your payment was determined is included with your check. Please allow two weeks for the Post Office to deliver your check before requesting that your check be reissued.

    In a small number of instances, the ACH information provided by a Class Member was determined to be invalid, and so the Class Member's payment was sent by check even though the person had requested payment by ACH.
