If you’re a parent then you know how important it is to have a car seat for your child. But what if you don’t have a car? Or what if you’re not able to drive? That’s where Lyft comes in. Lyft is a ridesharing service that allows you to request a car with a driver. And yes you can request a car that has a car seat for your child.
Here’s how it works: when you open the Lyft app you’ll see an option to select a car seat. You can choose from a standard car seat a forward-facing car seat or a booster seat. Once you’ve selected the type of car seat you need you’ll be matched with a driver who has a car that can accommodate your request.
Of course you’ll want to make sure that the car seat is properly installed and that your child is buckled in before you start your ride. And when you’re finished be sure to thank your driver for accommodating your request.
So if you need a ride and you have a child who needs a car seat don’t hesitate to request a Lyft. It’s a safe and convenient way to get around town with your little one.
