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.

Never had a problem yet

So far so good
They took my money and I never got it back.
Ja.dayy on 6/26/2017
So the other day my BF and I wanted to take a lyft home, so we ordered one. We waited for about 30mins for the driver to come and when he arrived he drove past us and then cancelled the ride without contacting us. When we tried to call him they didn't connect us. My Bf checked his account and noticed that they took the money out for the lyft ride that we never got. So we ordered ANOTHER lyft this time we charged it to my card hoping that this wouldn't happen again. What do you know when the lyft driver came he drove past the location AGAIN and got pulled over by a police car and then the ride got transferred over to another LYFT driver. I was charged for that ride ALSO. So being that the new driver coming was going to be our THIRD one for the night. We asked him about it and he said he never heard of anything like this and that we should contact lyft. I've been trying to reach out to lyft ever since and haven't heard anything yet. I'm VERY disappointed.
Uber is mad expensive all of a sudden.

Lyft is cheaper.
Reliable, quick
Luvsfab4 on 6/26/2017
Have only used a few times but each time the drivers were available quickly and drove well. Seems like a reliable service!
Scheduling
kelliejo13579 on 6/26/2017
Bummed that you changed the scheduling window from 10 minutes to 15. It's made the schedule functionality unusable for me because I want the extra time to sleep for early morning flights.

Thousands of fake reviews
mrmiller on 6/26/2017
Anyone else notice the thousands of fake reviews that have popped up here lately? All rating the app 5-stars. What a shady way to try and get new users. Apple should pull them out of the App Store until they delete all these fake reviews.
Amazingly easy

Great app and good driver thanks lyft
Better than uber
Capt. Bojangles3 on 6/26/2017
Uber is for dumb babies, Lyft is best ever!
Way better than uber
Snowden112 on 6/26/2017
Lyft is way better than uber. I started using uber due to the popularity but they ripped me off for some bs cleaning charge that I know I didn't do so I refuse to ever use them again but lyft is always excellent and I can tip the good drivers
I like it, sometimes
Neli07 on 6/26/2017
Is ok
Good

Better than uber
Would be pretty good with a few simple tweaks in VoiceOver mode.
Lucky 10382 on 6/26/2017
Invoice over mode, it would be nice if when entering the verification code that the app would speak back the number when you enter it in. That's how it is on most other apps on this app it just gives a beep which is usually on other apps indicating that the number didn't go through. Another feature is that from my location it is not giving me a price estimate. This is a big deal as I'm not thrilled about blindly requesting a ride without knowing the price. Invoice over mode it just says N a.
2 mile ride for $22
Armzen on 6/26/2017
Paid $22.66 for 1.96 mile ride in New York. Didn't see any disclaimer that rates are higher will never use again deleted app. At least uber has clear disclaimer when rates are higher.
Overcharged, NO reliable way to dispute
Blackishpink on 6/26/2017
I was just charged double by a Lyft driver for a route I frequently take in DC area ($70 instead of $35). Because their help page makes it sound as if you can dispute charges on the ride history (but won't place a ride into said history unless you okay the charges or wait 24 hrs), I okayed the charges (obv not tipping the driver and giving them 1*). Big mistake! Didn't help anything! Didn't give me an exact breakdown of the cost. Didn't have an option such as "I was charged a wrong amount." We'll see what they do BUT I will NEVER use them again.
Love Lyft!
Daesdemona on 6/26/2017
I love supporting a company who supports their employees. Riding Lyft has always been pleasurable!
Fast and convenient
BroadwayBrawley on 6/26/2017
Excellent experience and recommend to everyone.
No Hotline To Call
ΛRCHON on 6/26/2017
They have no customer service hotline so no direct communication with the customers it's a shame
Great app!
Loony911 on 6/25/2017
I'm switching over from Uber permanently! Great app and better user experience from the technology to the drivers!
Free ride

Scar4 for free first ride
Trash
KingMonolo on 6/25/2017
Wow!!! Really!? Lyft why do I have to pay 230% more for a fare. That's insane you people are always raising the fare that has nothing to do with the customer. 50% 75% an at worst yet ever a fare that costs $30 to be raised to $138. That I'm sure is against the law. You are trying to rip people off.
Good riding share
jojomojo137843 on 6/25/2017
It is good and important there is competition in the ride sharing market. Decisions are always good for consumers!
Love lyft
Breezij06 on 6/25/2017
Lyft is easy to use and understand. Definitely download uber for back up. Doesn't get four stars because I can't use PayPal balance.
English speaking drivers.
POB14 on 6/25/2017
I live in Miami but do not speak Spanish. It would be nice to be able to request a driver that speaks English. Most drivers are good about making an effort. However it makes it difficult to communicate directions or what my location is. This might be something to add this feature to the app.
Helpful

I absolutely love everything about Lyft! Keep up the great work!!!
Can't register!
Pandeyg2106 on 6/25/2017
It asks my drivers license to verify my identity. I don't have a drivers license. That is the reason I need Lyft.
Way better UX than Uber!!
MsRocket on 6/25/2017
A super hassle free way to hail a ride 😄
Uber's competition
PearseL on 6/25/2017
That's how I view Lyft. Drivers recently have been nicer, though the navigation program they use is slow to update if the route changes.
Better than uber
FellowGEEK on 6/25/2017

Lyft Line is worse than L.A. bus system
NoniCrabs99 on 6/25/2017
I've been using Lyft Line to commute to work daily for 5 months and it keeps getting worse. To the point where I now take the bus in the morning. The bus follows a predictable route, timing and affordable price. If you paired clients up more efficiently maybe Line would be worth it, but as of now it makes the car go back where it came from to pick someone up after 10mn of driving, adding 20mn to a ride, and can make the driver jump off the freeway at the last minute before an exit, which is totally unsafe. Riders' shared routes barely match at all sometimes and rides that take 15mn can take up to 35. It's only a few bucks cheaper than regular Lyft and surges all the same, while adding huge chunks of time to your rides. What's the point? As it is Line offers little over the bus or regular Lyft. Pass.
Can't update driver's license photo
J. Sexton on 6/25/2017
I have applied to be a driver. When I did I received an error message saying my DMV check cannot be completed. I have received several texts from Lyft asking me to update my info, but there is no place to do this. They keep asking me to upload a pic of my expired dl but #1 I don't have an expired license, and if I ever had one the DMV takes it when you get your current license anyways. And #2 there is no option to upload a pic anywhere. What do I do Lyft?
No consistency
BR1286 on 6/25/2017
Holy crap you guys are so unreliable, I have been switched to two drivers already and I'm still waiting because my driver has been 4 minutes away for about 10 minutes now.
Lyft
Beauty2343 on 6/25/2017
Usually all my Lyft drivers are pretty cool and chilled but you have some that are crazy and drive crazy but other than the crazy drivers once in a blue moon Lyft is actually reasonable with the fares and pricing
Don't depend on the drivers for anything that's further than 15minutes
Bigmeechmikehunt on 6/25/2017
I used to use Lyft over Uber for all distances until two Lyft drivers called me up, one after the other after already waiting 5min and asked if I wanted to wait 15min. When I told them yes they said oh it'll be better if we cancel. So they forced me to cancel. Uber doesn't give me pathetic excuses. I'd rather pay more for the reliability. A drivers job is to drive. This is not a career that makes them six figures. It won't make them rich. So from now on it'll be Uber everywhere so they can miss me with the BS.
The Good, The Bad & the Ugly
you lyft me up on 6/25/2017
Ok - so no one has been UGLY but a couple of the cars could and should have been much cleaner in both Uber and Lyft. I have had a couple of Bad drivers who were adjusting their map quest while driving and almost missed turns or exits. Or who have bad attitudes about their pay but it was more a reflection of them at the time or company changes they were effected by and they were in transition. And only one driver who was more concerned with their music preference than mine. But we found a compromise at silence. I'd rate Both Uber and Lyft as good. In the past I preferred the positive attitude of the Lyft drivers but now it's hard to tell because they drive for both. Regardless, it's the right attitude of anyone in a service position that merits high praise and I've experienced some pretty high quality people at Lyft and will call on them when I need one.
Leaving Lyft
Nikki😛 on 6/25/2017
I used to love Lyft to the moon and back because prices were reasonable and drivers were quick. Whenever I'm getting picked up, drivers go up a side street and i have to walk to the car. Drivers used to pull up right in front of my house and now i have to walk two minutes when I shouldn't have to. Prices are getting unreasonably high with worse service as well. This is truly upsetting because I've been with lyft for more than a year. Fix it or you'll lose another customer.
Drivers constantly cancel
orlandoneil on 6/25/2017
There's no point to this app with 4 drivers canceling in a row. Deleting this app
Love Lyft

I used to drive for uber and Lyft, and I have to say that Lyft is way better, Clients are kind and friendly and Lyft support are amazing. Uber is trash. Thank you.
Better than Uber, but letting me down..
michaeljackson_mariahcarey on 6/25/2017
First off, don't get me wrong, I absolutely love this app. It's inexpensive, fast and reliable. But just recently, it's only just inexpensive...drivers that I request take so long to arrive, I've been late to work 3 times because of drivers that just take 10, 15, 14 minutes for pick up and most of the drivers have such low stars I have to keep canceling and finding a new one. (I only feel comfortable with 4.8-5.0) Secondly, it's not as reliable as it used to be. 😔 in the past 4 days I've requested a ride, THE RIDE WAS CANCELLED ON ME and just like that the rides were gone. And it says they're coming and then I open up the app again and it's just been cancelled on me and I'm literally waiting for nothing. Very annoying after awhile. And just recently, I've been having an issue where they say they picked me up and dropped me off but never even came to begin with. They get paid while I'm just confused and frustrated cause I'm trying to go home/work! Ugh...Like I said before, I love this app but lately it's not up to par for a long time customer like me. 😔👎🏽 please look into this and fix it please!
Lyft over uber
Thirssttyy123 on 6/25/2017
I always compare uber and Lyft prices before each ride and lyft fares are way more reasonable than uber!
