Missing an important feature

Lyft is a very convenient and cheap alternative to Taxi's. However, there are large stretches of time where i'm hopelessly staring at my screen hoping for a lyft to become available. Lyft should implement a feature where the amount of drivers currently driving people around is presented, that way I know whether to have hope that a lyft car will become available, or forever be doomed to staring at the "all drivers are currently busy" sentence, wondering if I will ever get a ride. Also, if they implement a feature that guessed the recommended donation, that would also make this app a no-brainer 5 star app. Lastly, if there could be a search period, where say for the next 10 minutes the app will automatically request the nearest lyft as it becomes available, that would also save me from having to stare at my phone for long stretches of time. If 2 of these 3 features are implemented, lyft will become an excellent service.

Excellent Interface & Seamless

The interface is very minimalist and streamline.

Really cool how you can see the drivers around you.

But be aware that the map can easily be nudged before you requests the Lyft, so that it will put you in a different location then where you actually are.

You can use the search field on the bottom to enter correct address or business names so the driver can easily find you.

New feature to put destination is awesome as well!

Wish the interface for entering the tip was a little bit clearer.


I'm a Lyft driver and I love going out to give rides when I'm not at my primary job. The people who ride are all awesome, and the drivers seem great too(I've only met a couple). Good conversations have been had, complimentary beverages have been served, and a Lyft can be requested without having to leave the noisy bar- right through the app- and it'll be there quicker than a taxi! I can work as much or as little as I want so that my work/life balance is in check. I love Lyft!
