Description

Need a lift? Try Lyft for a friendly, affordable ride whenever you need one. Request a ride with the tap of a button, and get picked up by a nearby community driver who’ll take you to your destination within minutes. Yep, it's that easy. • Split the cost of a ride with friends. It’s easy, fast, and secure. • All Lyft drivers pass comprehensive background and DMV checks. • Drivers are rated by passengers and only the highest-rated drivers are allowed on the road. • Lyft provides a first-of-its-kind $1M liability insurance for total peace of mind. Join the millions who’ve taken 5-star rides. Download and take a ride today! — What people are saying: "Ride-sharing programs like Lyft are providing commuters with less expensive and more social ways to get around. Users log into the app, specify where they’re heading, and a background-checked driver picks them up for less than a typical cab ride." - TODAY Show “Lyft is a real community — with both the drivers and riders being inherently social — making real friendships and saving money.” - Time "In a city where taxis can be scarce and… black town cars are rampant but expensive, Lyft has quickly gained visibility due to low prices and quirky branding." - Ad Age "Lyft's focus on the everyman has recently extended to the wildly successful Lyft Line carpool service aimed at commuters, which offers discounts of 30% to 60% for sharing a Lyft ride with others." - Fast Company — Prices vary based on market condition. By downloading the app, you agree to allow Lyft to collect your device's language settings.

    Easily the worst rideshare service I’ve used. Rides are regularly cancelled and the customer is charged a fee, despite it being the drivers who cancel, riders will regularly be booted from scheduled rides without notice requiring them to request another, and on this service I have experienced drivers making disgusting comments about women, race, and gender. And I’m not talking some mild nonsense, but vulgar language so bad that I felt like I needed to shower after the ride. Repeated complaints about this to Lyft do nothing. Further, the drivers themselves are unsafe, rude, and generally have so much difficulty with English that communicating is near impossible. As someone who fully understands the difficulties of learning a second language, I feel for them. But at the same time, if you are not even conversant enough in the local language to be able to answer a simple phone call to find out where the ride is located, there’s an issue. Particularly when that leads to the rider missing the ride and being charged a fee. Do yourself a favor and check out of some of the less popular rideshare programs, they’ll likely serve you much better than this trash-heap. Lyft, you really need to up your game and make this stuff right.

    First of all, if you haven't taken a ride yet make sure you use the coupon "RIDE782" to get $50 off your first ride!! Enter it right before you request a ride. Go to the Payments tab in the app and enter the coupon there. Might as well try it out since it probably won't cost you a thing!! The app is simple, easy to use and intuitive by design, giving you important info like the driver's face, phone number, and car make and model. It's amazing how quick and seamless the entire process is. A car comes to your door within minutes of pressing a button!!! The drivers are real people, they are very polite and their cars are clean! Some even come with complimentary water, gum and candy! Even if you want to charge your phone, a lot of drivers have phone chargers at your ready!! Lyft is definitely cheaper than your average cab. After all this, I don't see why you would ever use a yellow cab again. Even if you want to get a black car on the occasional night out, it's still cheaper and more convenient than hiring your own private driver. The customer support is also fantastic. I got overcharged on one of my trips and I didn't have to say anything more than a short comment on my driver feedback to get a full refund. I'm very happy and I hope Lyft continues to exceed my expectations in not only the app but customer service! I also prefer Lyft much more than other competitors, mainly because they have so much more supply and cars are always just a few minutes away!!!!

The customer support is also fantastic. I had very bad experience with Uber service but with Lyft, I got overcharged on one of my trips and I didn't have to say anything more than a short comment on my driver feedback to get a full refund.

  • Should add a filter for Dog friendly lyfts

    By annonymouss
    It would be a really helpful feature to add a dog friendly filter for requesting cars. Right now you could order a lyft and then when you get matched immediately call the driver and ask if they are ok with a dog in the car. It would be much better to have a toggle for dog friendly cars
  • Malfunction app and wasted my time

    The app changed the address I put in and directed the driver to drive us to the wrong location during the trip. Wasted our time and money. Don’t use this app.

    Really bad. Didn’t tell me price of ride before or during the trip. Also, wouldn’t let me update payment card to my AMEX, saying that I had to use a “US card”. Pretty sure an AMERICAN Express is a US card.

    I got a ride from Miami airport to the hotel. The driver kept the meter on and went back to the airport so I got charged for a round trip. I asked for help and a refund 3 times with no reply. Uber from now on
  • might as well take a bus

    lyft takes as long as buses do here, so it seems like a ripoff and a waste of time, with even less respect for passengers and drivers.
