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
For Lyft drivers, continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 3.7.0
In this update, we made little adjustments to keep the app running at 100%.
Love the service hate the app
The service is magnificent but the app has some serious issues. Most of the drivers only use it to pick up and usually still have a hard time locating me. The directions drivers are given are 100% of the time ridiculous and take longer. The app does not allow you to search properly by city and most of the map is not even updated. It's ridiculous! I've wasted my own money and the drivers' time going down weird alleys all around Boston and attempting to get to a destination. Like I said, none of the drivers even use the app's directions which is just silly. And the whole prime time deal is completely bogus. There is no such thing as prime time- only not a lot of drivers around. Lots wrong with the app, but I love the service so I keep it.
I love Lyft!
I had only great experience with Lyft and I have had over 20 rides so far. All drivers I have had rides with were very polite. Their cars were clean and smelled nice. I like the price and how the Lyft app is easy in use. I like the feature that you can see a picture of your driver and their car. You have their license plate numbers and you can call them any time to explain your exact location. I will always highly recommend Lyft to my friends and family. Love it!!!
Issues, but overall love Lyft
I would give this app a 5, but there are a couple of issues I have with it. First the map needs a little bit of fixing. The driver I had today was sent to my neighbors house next door because that's where he was sent. Secondly I had a request from a young lady about 2 weeks ago and I'm not sure why. She lived in Spring Valley, CA (San Diego area) and I live way out here in Riverside County.
