My account was deactivated

My Lyft Driver account was deactivated because I took off 6 weeks due to a non-job related back injury. At the time there was no way to inform Lyft I would not be driving for awhile. I never received a notice via email or a text regarding my inactivity. I tried to return to work this past Mondaycto discover Lyft had deactivated my account. There does not appear to be any way to inform Lyft that I am trying to return to work. Their app will not allow me to communicate and only loops back to contact support. Am I one and done? I was a good driver, a safe driver, no incidents or problems, no violations of company policies, etc.. Am I one and done? Does anyone know or know how to contact Lyft?

When you say it loops around to contact support, are you able to actually send them a message? I stopped driving about 6 weeks ago too, but my account is still active, but I'm sure it won't be for long. I'm not planning on driving anytime soon, but liked the ides that I might be able to come back later if I need to. Can you please let us know if you're able to get it reactivated?

Your account is active. There's always a passenger portion. You can still choose "help" and email them, although, I don't know why you would want to. You can make minimum wage (or less) elsewhere.

Yeah I mean once you stop driving and look back at your income/expenses, it's obvious that Lyft and Uber are just a waste of time. So I figured I can use my time for better things, I don't need their $5-6 per hour after all expenses.

You can also send a message via Facebook and Twitter (@asklyft).

Yeah - something is kooky. You should be able to send a help ticket without logging in from help.lyft.com.

What ^ said. Maybe you have documents expired, especially recent background check.

And if you know you wont be able to drive, just go online really fast once a week and offline after.

You can email any of the support emails you've used in the past or call the trust and safety number.You may also need to reapply

But Lyft is better than Uber, right? Anyone? That's what my Uber pax say sometimes: that the drivers all like Lyft better. I know I'm not being helpful. People just annoy me and I have to type about it so I can live through it another day.

I always tell people "they are better at pretending to care than Uber". Given the opportunity and if they were to out do Uber they have the potential to become even worse.Money is truly the root of all evil and it fertilizes it too

It's "the love of money". Money is actually much better than bartering. Unfortunately, like heroin becomes a short cut to an immediate sense of well-being that would otherwise be accomplished with living well, money becomes a short cut to gain & power, and the stupid human animal doesn't have the inner resources to resist focusing on acquiring money for its own sake. Money is like a power token, power being something we each have a natural desire for (simple autonomy is power). But like heroin is a token to simplify acquiring well-being, and then more and more is needed to the negligence of all else, money is like that with the need for power. We all need some power for an ideal society to function, and money facilitates this because it's more accesible than constant bartering of cumbersome objects. Ohhh @@@@, who cares, why am I lecturing, and without any preparation even. Sorry. I just meant to say "the love of money is the root". And it's a root of evil, not the root of all evil.
