In an effort to comply with curfew orders around the country, Uber, Lyft, and the food delivery platform DoorDash are temporarily suspending services in some cities. More than three dozen cities have implemented curfews following demonstrations protesting the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25.
Lyft has yet to release a list of the cities where they will be suspending services. A spokesperson only provided that the company is following the direction of local government. Uber has suspended operations during curfew hours in Minneapolis, Oakland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. In some cities, officials have asked Uber to continue to operate even with curfew orders in place, in an effort to serve essential workers without other means of transportation.
