  • No rides for minors. There are no exceptions to this policy.

Vanderbilt Ridehail Waiver and Release Form

The following Waiver and Release Form, or alternate acknowledgement protocol approved by Transportation & Mobility and Purchasing & Payment Services, must be completed by each rider within your sponsored program. The Waiver and Release Form describes the risks associated with ridehail services and personally identifiable information that may be transferred and stored to conduct ridehail services. Each rider receiving Lyft rides sponsored by your program must have this Waiver and Release Form on file.

Complete the Ridehail Program Waiver and Release Form. Rider information is kept on file for your sponsored program.

Verifying a Rider’s Eligibility to Use Lyft

To verify a rider’s eligibility to utilize Lyft for your program, e-mail with the rider’s full name and VUnetID. It is the VU program’s or school’s responsibility to ensure that riders have completed the Waiver and Release Form, reviewed the Ridehail Safety Checklist, and setup a Lyft personal account.
