Lyft Safety Council

Lyft and its competitor Uber have both faced criticism for failing to effectively address sexual assault and harassment claims. Lyft has publicly acknowledged that its response has fallen short, and the company now faces a lawsuit, which accuses Lyft of failing to protect its female passengers. It’s unclear how many sexual assault claims Lyft has received, but one of the lawyers involved in the lawsuit said “the cases are coming to us at a rate of five to 10 per week.” In Uber’s first biennial US Safety Report, released in December, the company said it received nearly 6,000 reports of sexual assault in the US in 2017 and 2018.
