The Lyft-Checkr Story

Checkr has had a great impact on Lyft’s business, and that’s why we have a long term partnership.
Allen Lohse
Director of Legal and Regulatory, Lyft

Lyft has been connecting riders with drivers since 2012, and with that comes ensuring they remain compliant with background screenings. With over 80 different laws to comply with, Allen Lohse, Director of Legal and Regulatory, and his team are responsible for meeting those requirements.

Lyft switched to Checkr in 2018 for faster turnaround times on background checks, improved technology capabilities, and increased accuracy of reporting.

Allen and his team run hundreds of thousands of background checks through Checkr each year. With such a large number of screenings and a small team, they rely on Checkr Assess to look at each record and score it against the standards they give to Checkr.

Checkr’s customer support is top notch. We’re a very fast-paced company, and the speed at which Checkr representatives get back to us is amazing
