official Lyft policy of not paying drivers for completed rides if the passenger cancels within 5 minutes after being picked up and provided the service they requested ? So make sure you tell family and friends. My son takes Lyft frequently as he has Cerebral Palsy and cannot drive, but it adds up when on a fixed income, so he will start cancelling rides within 5 minutes of being picked up so he does not have to pay for them. Thanks Lyft ! Top notch morals there, kudos. I am sharing the official Lyft policy of not charging passengers for a ride they received and am encouraging passengers to comply with that official Lyft policy ?
