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.

Ratings and Reviews
$50 coupon: HALLOW
First of all, if you haven't taken a ride yet make sure you use the coupon "HALLOW" to get $50 off your first ride!! Enter it right before you request a ride. Go to the Payments tab in the app and enter the coupon there. Might as well try it out since it probably won't cost you a thing!!
The app is simple, easy to use and intuitive by design, giving you important info like the driver's face, phone number, and car make and model. 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, gum and candy! Even if you want to charge your phone, a lot of drivers have phone chargers at your ready!! Lyft is definitely cheaper than your average cab. After all this, I don't see why you would ever use a yellow cab again. Even if you want to get a black car on the occasional night out, it's still cheaper and more convenient than hiring your own private driver.
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 short comment on my driver feedback to get a full 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 and cars are always just a few minutes away!!!!
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.
