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.

Great App (USA Only Though)


Downloaded this app when on holiday in USA, (Don’t download in UK Based) there’s some great first time user promo codes so make sure you search for them.

Since Uber just lost its license in London, England. Maybe Lyft will take the opportunity to mace across the pond?

Dislike this for two reasons


1. Lyft is not available in the UK and I think it ought to say “U.S. only” or similar in the app blurb so that I don’t install this unnecessarily.

2. Once you have given your details to the app you can’t delete the account (i.e. when you realise you can’t use it as it’s U.S. only), only deactivate according to heir website. Except I cannot find how to do that per their seemingly outdated instructions 🙄

Please come to the UK!


TFL has just announced they are not renewing Uber's license to operate, when will Lyft be available in the U.K/London? We need a good competitor to Uber here, would be great to understand when this will happen?
