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.

What's New in Version 5.1.31
Thanks for choosing Lyft! To make your rides even better, we update the app regularly. It’s like housekeeping: squashing bugs, cleaning up code, and other small-but-mighty improvements.
Been left twice
I have had the bad experience of setting up a ride and they apparently showed up and said I wasn’t there, canceling me and still charging me $5. So the 1st time i wasn’t so mad about it because i just walked home to where i got home in a 30min walk. 2nd time im looking and waiting and i get a text saying ooops you missed your ride, still charging me canceling fee.
Im switching over to UBER i heard they at least text you before they cancel on you and leave.
The only cool thing about lift (i used it a total of 7 times) is that you get coupons in the email like 2off on your rides. The email will say $20 coupon but its not for one ride it $2 off x 10rides = $20 and that the time they did show up to pick me up the longest I waited was 8min
First and last experience- what an awful service
First of all I had high hopes for the app but I was disappointed- the fare was supposed to be $7- the app kept updating to current location to nearby train station (1.2 minutes from my house) - it took the driver less than a minute to get there and because it wasn’t my house he asked me to cancel the trip and order it again- I told him I was being charged $5 and he replied I wasn’t going to get charged- I followed the instructions and requested a new ride- the person was 3 minutes away- (I live next to a busy road) - then the time increased to 6 minutes and I saw the vehicle driving the opposite direction- at then end I got charged for a service I didn’t use and ended up driving the 3 miles I needed the service for- so stick to Uber!
Needs a lot of improvement
For my elderly parents this app is very hard to use. It should have a way to store various addresses so that it can be easily entered. My father comes and goes to the same place each time, unfortunately there is no way to enter more than one scheduled driver. Three days a week at the same time twice a day and yet there is no way to schedule that. For some with slight dementia it’s hard to remember what to do.
