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 3.27.1
Here’s the deal: We update our app every week. Download our regular updates for the latest (and greatest) version of Lyft. See you on the road!
$50 coupon: LYFT567
First of all, if you haven’t taken a ride yet make sure you use the coupon LYFT567 to get $50 off your first ride! Enter it right before you request a ride in the Payment tab under Add Payment Method. Might as well try it out since it probably won't cost you a thing!
The app is easy to use and intuitive, giving you important info like the driver’s face, car model, and they’re number if you need to call them. 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 and candy! Even if you want to charge your phone, a lot of drivers have car chargers at your ready! With the new Lyft Line it’s cheaper than ever, rides can cost you as low as a few dollars. After all this, I don’t see why you would ever take a cab again.
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 comment on my driver feedback to get a 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 meaning their cars are always just a few minutes away, and price is usually the cheapest.
Overall you should definitely give it a try, especially with the $20 coupon I gave you!
I have used lyft for years. I enjoy the friendly drivers and efficiency if you are in a hurry. I've used lyft in multiple cities, by far best price rate over competition driving services or cab! Anytime an items is left in the car or an issue arises, customer service is quick to respond back via email and help find the lost item or fix the issue. Best customer service!! I will continue to refer others to lyft b/c of their amazing referral program and great overall experience!
5 rides, 5 stars
Lyft is several orders of magnitude better than Uber.
I don't like using Uber because of the price cuts which hurts their drivers, the surges when it's raining or snowing, their no tipping policy which hurts drivers, and hearing about friends having many problems with Uber.
My Lyft drivers have always been friendly and courteous and I know that I don't have to worry about "surge" pricing. They're also always on time which is a huge plus. I'll be using Lyft when I need a car from now on.
