I'm so very grateful to have an opportunity to be in service to our community in this vulnerable time in history. Each ride I provide each meal I deliver every single person is so grateful that our companies are here to help keep them safe. I feel as if we are being given the opportunity to make the daily lives of all Americans safer and happier. We are helping communities comply with the "Stay at Home" policy. Are we helping save lives? I don't know, but what I do feel and see is the gratitude from our community for being in service. We are in this together. Stay safe.
It feels great to know I can help people, to help them feel protected and to help get them the items they need or want without having to leave their homes. Someone has to help and I am willing and able.

Hi, my name is Trisha, I'm picking up people and families in all counties. Orange County, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Bernardino and Riverside County, CA. I drive late evenings for people that are in need to get help to the airport, train stations, parents' houses or hospitals. The later the work, the more dire the need. I enjoy helping people and it gives me the flexibility to be around for my mom and kids during the days and early evenings. I've worked desk jobs and they truly are not as rewarding as this. I make a difference and I'm told daily. Please stand with us. We are becoming the go-to -in all aspects of life. We are necessary!

I began driving for Lyft for a number of reasons. Yes, the flexibility is very important to me because of my 13 year old son but also because I have health issues that restrict how long I can stand or sit, so being able to stop when I need to is what makes ridesharing so perfect for me. My very favorite part about driving is getting to meet so many different people and knowing that I'm getting people home safely. I also have a 25-year-old daughter so it makes me feel so good that I offer a safe, comfortable ride to young women working late. That's really important to me because I worry about my own daughter, so knowing that I'm getting someone else's daughter home safely makes me feel good. At this stage of my life, with the health issues I have, there's no other job that would be so flexible or understanding of my physical limitations.

Hi my name is Raekisha and I’m a food delivery driver. I started driving part-time for extra income. I have an autistic teen daughter who works in modeling and acting. I have to chaperone her on set because she is a minor, so when she books a job, which is sometimes far in between, I work to make money for bills, food and rent. The cost of living is very high where I live. I love the flexibility of being an independent contractor because it allows me to care of my daughter and her special needs while making extra money needed to keep a roof over our heads and food in our bellies. I'm grateful for the freedom to work around my secondary schedule. Without this extra income, I could possibly lose my apartment. Thank you for listening to my story.
I'm a 100% disabled Marine Corps veteran, and because of my disability, I'm no longer able to work in a structured environment. The few hours a week that I do ridesharing helps to connect me to my community and gives me extra money to help make ends meet and to spend on my granddaughter. The only reason that I am able to do this is that the ridesharing platform allows me to work when I am able to, and doesn’t require that I adhere to a schedule. On the days that I am unable to work, I don't.

Soy mama de un adolescente y de una niña pequeña, los 2 hacen deportes desde muy pequeños y gracias a la flexibilidad que mi trabajo me ofrece, tengo la oportunidad de estar con ellos en cada competencia o torneo, entre otras cosas. Y eso, es lo que más valoro de ser chofer independiente.
