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.

Lyfts Consideration to Getting Back to Customers on Issues
I started using Lyft through my family. They referred me, and even though they never received referral fees, we still continue. At first rides would come as stated; example, if it said 2 minutes, they would come in 2 minute. Then as time went on, we start to find drivers stating a time, and some would come almost 10 minutes later. Imagine this, because remember that when you are waiting, the clocks ticks, and you must be there without delay, or its cancelled and you are charged.
Ive had many drivers, and recent too, say they arrived, when they had not. Ive had drivers come with the cleanest cars, and lately with dirty exterior and interior. When riding the line, being patient, they will stop to get the other person, even though you are waiting, and then drop them first, landing me much later to my destination. Ive had drivers drive fast, almost going through lights, and looking at their phones while driving. Not acceptable.
So, while many of this concerns may just be the way life is i guess, and mishaps i must be understanding to, and maybe I'm still even learning how this all works, my ability to reach Lyft immediately, or get a call back, or reply to my concerns, to me is a major concern, poor business, and pretty inconsiderate since I've been using the service consistently for months. Maybe a little consideration in trying to fix this please. Thanks so much.

I’ve never used this kind of service before and I was a little leery, last night was my first time writing with them. They are incredible! I am legally blind so they were very helpful, kind, polite, friendly. They got me to where I was going and more, they even help me to the door and inside. This is a service that needs to continue to be used, especially by those with disabilities-visually impaired/blind. This is a very incredible, important, untapped resource that needs to continue to be used. It’s incredible and a lot of other people should be using this. Last night, I paid under $20 for around trip. It’s incredible, if you would try any other cab service they would charge you even more than that. Their rates are extremely fair and since they have projects going on you’re not wasting your money at all. It’s also very incredible and awesome that they’re also doing the round up, which is where the rounded up to the nearest dollar and the difference will go to a charity of your choice. You can even write it off as a tax deductible, most of them will tell you if they are or if they’re not. I’ll definitely continue to use their services, I’d also recommend this to anyone in a heartbeat.
If I could give four and a half stars I would. The only reason for a half star off of five is because how their scheduling works. I travel nearly every week for work and I really enjoy the convenience of Lyft to the airport (about a 35 mile ride). Since I am usually leaving the house around 3:30 am to 5:30 am I schedule my ride the night before. The problem is I never get a confirmation that a driver has accepted my route until about 10 to 15 minutes before they pick me up. Every driver has indicated that they accepted my route the night before, so why was I not notified then? I’m not looking for the specific drivers name or make of car, it would just be nice to know that a driver has accepted. Why this is important: Recently Atlanta had forecast of possible icy conditions around the time I would be leaving for the airport. But up until about 15 minutes before I was to leave I had no idea if any Lyft drives were actually working (which would be completely understandable given the weather situation). Had I been given a confirmation when the driver accepted, a lot of anxiety could have been avoided. Please update the app and procedures and I will be happy to give it five stars.
