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.

What's New in Version 5.2.3
Thanks for choosing Lyft! To make your rides even better, we update the app regularly. It’s like housekeeping: squashing bugs, cleaning up code, and other small-but-mighty improvements.
$50 coupon: RIDE783
First of all, if you haven't taken a ride yet make sure you use the coupon "RIDE783" 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!!!!
No CUSTOMER CARE, just rip off passengers & GO !
I have used LYFT off & on over a year now, originally they were my go to opposed to Uber because when I did have any issues w. a ride or driver I was always helped within a few hours (if that long). Lyft no longer has that human to human contact and sadly now I have received MULTIPLE (at least 8+) drivers who have PURPOSELY found ways to attempt to get paid through cancellation fees through this app. This was my last straw, I normally do not write reviews however I just witnessed my driver mark himself present in my location 2 mins prior to arriving then called him (because they never call you) and asked if it was an effort to get a cancellation fee for him to say un huh on the phone and cause me to be charged w. that exact fee .. which was more than the cost of the ride. Now I have to wait more than a day to receive that money back or contact my bank because Lyft no longer respects their consumer. SAVE YOUR TIME & YOUR MONEY! ! Find a ride sharing app that still has some sort of human contact or at least responses within an appropriate amount of time if their drivers are abusing their policies.
Numerous Times When Driver Cancelled!!
My wife and I have used Lyft literally hundreds of times collectively. She doesn’t drive, so this is her sole mode of transportation on a daily basis. There have been MULTIPLE times that the driver never showed, didn’t call, didn’t answer our calls, and canceled the transaction. When this occurred, Lyft actually CHARGED US $5 for the cancellation! Can you believe this?!?! We stand around waiting for a ride, the driver doesn’t show, and we get charged? That’s unbelievable. And good luck trying to get any help from Lyft when this happens. They take you around in circles with no resolution.
What we have noticed is that this has only occurred on short trips. That is, when our destination is only a couple of miles away, this keeps happening. So clearly, the driver doesn’t think the ride is worthwhile and elects to cancel the ride and collect the cancellation fee rather than pick you up. So shady!
After all I have read in the news about Uber, we have made it a point to exclusively use Lyft; however after the last time when this happened, we were forced back to using Uber again.
