Additional Lyft App Information

  • You’ll need to have a debit or credit card saved in your Lyft account just in case a ride costs more than what is on a voucher.
  • Lyft will charge $15 to your account and then refund it back to you as a way to verify your debit or credit card.
  • You MUST verify the email address and phone number in your Lyft account to view your vouchers in your account, if you don’t they won’t be visible.
  • Vouchers DO NOT work with a business Lyft account. They will work only with personal Lyft accounts.
  • Vouchers DO NOT cover tipping the driver. Tips are charged to the card on file. Drivers also accept cash tips.
  • Vouchers DO NOT combine in your app. If you have a ride that costs more than what is remaining on your voucher, your card will be charged.

General Information

If you don’t wish to purchase vouchers online, you can email us and we can help.

As of July 1, 2019, vouchers will expire 1 year after they are dropped into your account. All prior vouchers still have an expiration date of December 31, 2019. If you have unused vouchers after this date, you must contact the N4 office to receive the unused voucher amount.

N4 is not responsible for payments charged to your credit or debit card once your credits have been used. It is your responsibility to monitor your available credit amount in the Payment section of the Lyft app.

This is a new program and is subject to change based on participant feedback, usage and funding availability. We welcome your ideas for making the program better. For more information, contact our team at (775) 453-4774 or people@neighbornv.org.
