Gaining access to information from companies outside one’s jurisdiction, such as Lyft. Inc., is a task that requires careful attention to legal intricacies. It’s best to work with a dependable process server to help you navigate these complex legal frameworks, especially when there is no physical presence in the state that can comply with your requests.

Possible Reasons to Serve a Subpoena on Lyft

You might need to serve an out-of-state subpoena on Lyft for a few reasons. These can include discovering the identity of passengers involved in an incident and accessing records such as logs, trips, payments, etc.

lyftYour Guide to Serving a Foreign Subpoena on Lyft, Inc.

Lyft carefully reviews third-party requests for user data and civil subpoenas following applicable state and federal laws. This rigorous review ensures they uphold their commitment to privacy and data protection. As part of their policy, Lyft always notifies users before disclosing any data, as outlined in their comprehensive Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.

The thorough review includes assessing the validity of each subpoena or data request. Lyft has strict criteria and only accepts facially and substantively valid requests. They also require that requests for user data be narrowly tailored and limited in scope to ensure they are appropriate.

Before submitting a request, verifying if the information sought is publicly available or can be obtained from another party involved in the litigation is encouraged.

To make your request valid, you must provide the following information:

  • A specific time period for which you are requesting data.
  • A specific identifying reference, such as an email address or phone number. (Please note that names and birthdays alone are not sufficient.)
  • Your contact information, including your name and either an email address or phone number.

Civil Subpoenas and Third-Party Requests Within the U.S.

Lyft, Inc. only addresses legitimate legal requests for user data, such as court orders and subpoenas. When it comes to civil cases, any third-party request for data or subpoena must comply with a valid Federal or California subpoena. Civil subpoenas must adhere to California’s Interstate and International Depositions and Discovery Act in cases involving state matters outside of California.

To serve Lyft with a civil subpoena or other legal process, you can serve it on CT Corporation Service Company, Lyft’s registered agent for service of process. The California Office of CT Corporation is conveniently located at the following address:


C T Corporation System

330 North Brand Blvd., Suite 700

Glendale, CA 91203


Subpoenas in federal civil cases may be served on Lyft’s registered agent for service of process in the state where the case is pending. However, regarding any civil state case, please ensure that subpoenas are served on CT Corporation at the mentioned California address. 

Lyft will only accept service if the document’s intended recipient matches the registered entity’s name with the Secretary of State. It’s important to note that your compliance with the legal process does not waive any of Lyft’s legal objections, rights, or remedies.

Kindly note that Lyft cannot accept service via email, fax, or regular mail.
