Lyft Family

Lyft Family allows you to link accounts with other riders. Your Family members can use a shared payment method to pay for all Lyft rides. You’ll also have access to safety features, including the ability to share ride details (driver details and location tracking).
As the organizer of the Lyft Family account, you can share your payment method with up to five family members to pay for rides. You'll also receive notifications for rides taken by Family members.
As a member of a Family account, you can tap Lyft Family as a payment method before requesting a ride. Your organizer can track your ride in real time and access ride payments taken on the Family account.
Please keep in mind, all Family members must be at least 18 years old to have a Lyft account.
Note: Passengers under the age of 18 aren’t allowed to travel alone, even if an adult holds a Lyft Family account.
