In this article we are going to outline everything you need to know about Lyft’s car seat mode in New York City. If you are looking for information on traveling with kids and other services that provide car seats, check out this all-inclusive article on Uber, Lyft, and Taxis.
Here’s how to request a ride in Car seat mode.
Car seat rides include an additional fee of $10 on top of the standard Lyft ride fare.
All Lyft car seat vehicles have the IMMI Go car seat, which is a forward facing model. This car seat is designed to transport kids between 31 -52 inches and 22 – 48 pounds.
While riders are responsible for ensuring their child is properly seated in the car seat, drivers are responsible for installing and uninstalling the car seat at the beginning and end of each ride. Drivers who participate in the Lyft car seat program must pass a knowledge test on the proper way to install, uninstall, and maintain the car seat.
Please note, that each Lyft car seat vehicle only has one car seat so you will only be able to travel with one small child.
