“Self-certification is good but sometimes verification is really important,” he said. “It’s one thing for us to issue guidelines and requirements but sometimes we have to enforce those requirements,” he added.
Meanwhile, Lyft also says there will be a verification process to make sure both riders and drivers are wearing masks.
“We believe being part of the Lyft community comes with shared responsibility. When you wear a mask, you are demonstrating to someone that you care about them. This helps give both sides riders and drivers that extra peace of mind during this time,” Lyft VP of Global Operations Angie Westbrock said during a press call.
