App Description

Need a lift? Try Lyft for a friendly, affordable ride whenever you need one. Request a ride with the tap of a button, and get picked up by a nearby community driver who’ll take you to your destination within minutes. Yep, it's that easy. • Split the cost of a ride with friends. It’s easy, fast, and secure. • All Lyft drivers pass comprehensive background and DMV checks. • Drivers are rated by passengers and only the highest-rated drivers are allowed on the road. • Lyft provides a first-of-its-kind $1M liability insurance for total peace of mind. Join the millions who’ve taken 5-star rides. Download and take a ride today! — 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. Prices vary based on market condition.

  • Bad customer service compared to uber.

    I hailed a $90 ride from LAX to my house in HB. The driver was falling asleep while on the trip. Kept jerking the steering wheel in turns and almost hit 4 cars. I had to give a new direction on the fly to get out of the vehicle. While he was merging off the freeway I had to warn him because he almost merged into another car. So I had him drop me off at a random house. Miles from my destination, me and my friend sitting in the middle of nowhere with all of our baggage waiting for an uber to come pick us up to take us the rest of the way. Lyft still charged me for this hell ride, sent an automated response about the driver and never followed up. He was probably driving people the rest of the night. Hopefully no one was injured. Shame on you Lyft.

    The commercial Lyft is currently running on NPR podcasts is terrible. Buttery voice? I don't like feeling uncomfortable first thing in the morning. Please stop running them.

    Everything is great except I have had two issues with my card randomly not working. It'll work for a week and then it'll just not accept either cards I have on my account. It's frustrating to say the least. Please fix this bug!

  • First 1 star review in 4 years

    I first got an iPhone 4 years ago. It was amazing device and changed my life. But this review isn't about the iPhone. It's about Lyft. In that timeframe I've never given a 1* review in my life until today. Why? you ask. Easy. This app doesn't allow you to select the destination you want to go and then present you a price quote. This doesn't make me feel safe (no pun intended because I know a lot of people get anxiety from meeting new people, no worries there, all my past Lyft drivers were friendly and went above and beyond, and I rated my Lyft driver 5* but the app 1* because of this pathetic hit and run "downgrade" (I think this feature used to be available in the past)
  • Best ride share service!

  • $50 free ride "DRV400" 😍 🏈 😍

    First of all, if you haven't taken a ride yet make sure you use the coupon "DRV400" 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!!!! IOS 11 is cool update from apple and I loved new features.

    Apply this code 💵 "LYFTD500" 💵 once you register.I've become a much happier person 🤡 since Lyft came into my life. Everyone so far has been amazing, it's always such a pleasure using Lyft! Never had any problems using the app. Keep up the great work! Quick , convenient, reliable Lyft is really quick, reliable and convenient. Pick up is less than 5 mins most times, no need to carry cash, always get nice and clean car . Drivers are very professional. The program is simple, simple to operate and intuitive by design, providing you information like the driver's face, contact quantity, and car brand name. Is actually amazing how quick and seamless the complete process is. A car comes to your door within occasions of pressing a button!!! The drivers are real people, they are incredibly thoughtful and their cars are clean! Some even feature complimentary water, gum and candy! Although you may need to charge your phone, a lot of drivers have phone chargers at your ready!! Lyft is certainly less costly than your average taxi. In reality this, I avoid understand why you would at any time use a green taxi again. Even if you need to get a dark car on the periodic night out, really still cheaper and more convenient than hiring your own private driver. The customer support is also fantastic. I acquired overcharged on one of my trips and I did not write anything more more than a brief comment on my new driver responses to obtain a full refund. Now i am happy and i also hope Lyft continues to exceed my expectations in not only the software but customer support! I actually also prefer Lyft much more than any other competitors, for the reason that they have much more now supply and autos are simply a couple of minutes away!!!!
