A.  Arbitration.

Arbitration procedures are generally simpler than the rules that apply in courts, and discovery is more limited.  Except as specifically outlined herein, you and/or Lyft Atlanta Transportation, LP may elect to resolve any dispute, claim or controversy (collectively “Claims”) by individual arbitration.  Such Claims include, but are not limited to, all disputes between the parties arising out of, or in any way relating to:  Lyft Atlanta services; loss, damage or injury to persons and/or property transported by a Lyft Atlanta vehicle; claims of discrimination; the use of the lyftatlanta.org website and its implementation; and these Terms and Conditions or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof.

Arbitration may be commenced by either party at any time.  Except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.

The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.

B.  No Trial by Jury or Class Action / Representative Claims.

If arbitration is chosen by either party, neither you nor a Lyft Atlanta Transportation, LP will have the right to litigate that Claim in court or have a jury trial on that Claim.  By accepting these Terms and Conditions, you acknowledge and agree that you and Lyft Atlanta are each waiving the right to a trial by jury to any Claim subject to arbitration. 

If either party elects to resolve a claim by arbitration, that claim will be arbitrated on an individual basis. There will be no right or authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, other persons similarly situated.

The arbitrator's authority is limited to claims between you and Lyft Atlanta alone. Claims may not be joined or consolidated unless you and the Lyft Atlanta agree in writing.  An arbitration award and any judgment confirming it will apply only to the specific case and cannot be used in any other case except to enforce the award.

C.  Arbitration Rules and Process.

Claims are to be decided by a neutral arbitrator. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this "Dispute Resolution" section.  The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.

A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules.  The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration on its website.  The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA's roster of consumer dispute arbitrators.  If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within thirty (30) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.

D.  Arbitration Location and Procedure

Unless you and Lyft Atlanta agree otherwise in writing, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside.  In the event that you reside outside of the continental United States, the arbitration will be conducted in the county of your departure.

If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Lyft Atlanta submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary.  If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules.  Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.

E.   Arbitrator’s Decision.

The arbitrator's decision is as enforceable as any court order and is subject to very limited review by a court. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator's decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award.  Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

F.  Fees

Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Lyft Atlanta will pay all such fees, unless the Arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
