How do I know that the driver knows how to install the car seat?
Lyft has engaged third-party child passenger safety (CPS) technicians that have been certified under the auspices of the National Child Passenger Safety Training Program. These CPS technicians have tested each Lyft driver in our Car Seat program to assure that the driver knows how to properly install the IMMI Go car seat in the driver’s vehicle and that the car seat is in proper working condition.
