I had a ride today where when I arrived, an adult walked their kid, maybe 12 or so, to the truck and told me to take them to the food court entrance at the mall where she was meeting another adult..

I took the ride, but then 1stared them so I wouldn't get them again.

Is that reasonable? I am still new, (only 155 rides), so I am still trying to figure out dos and donts.

you account will be banned for driving minors with lyft. next time call lyft tell them why you drove off they will pay you the 5 dollars.
i called uber they told me i am allowed to drive minors in my area if i do not then i can cancel the ride with out hurting my record.
if you do not have a dash camera you need to pass on these rides this is a serious issue .

trouble is when you hit your 40s every girl or guy starts to look very young and the minors sometimes look older then they should.
I get that, I'm far older than 40. But I've never really thought that a call to a high school to pick up should not cause me pause.

Hell, as old as I am, **** Jagger looks like a kid! :)

Straight from Rohit's mouth. I'm sure Lyft's the same.

Don't rely on phone support. They are probably in in different Country that has different laws. Google is your friend. www.google.com, Uber minors. Not difficult.

Can minors use Uber or Lyft?
No, not allowed by Uber or Lyft. ... You cannot call an Uber or Lyft for your teenagers under 18, as they are not allowed to ride unless they are accompanied by an adult.Sep 11, 2018
