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
$10 coupon: RIDE827
First of all, if you haven't taken a ride yet make sure you use the coupon "RIDE827" to get $10 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!!!!
Info shown in app did not match
Lyft never responded to a serious safety issue reported to the critical response line. The vehicle make, license plate, and photo of the driver who accepted my ride did not match the vehicle, license plate or person who arrived. The driver was outside the car blocking traffic, hollering my name and acting foolish. Apparently, it was my fault for not looking for a different vehicle, license plate, & person which did not match what was provided by Lyft. I asked why he did not match the photo and why his car/plates were different. Then I noticed he had another person in the front seat, which was concerning for a female bc I ordered a regular ride, not a shared ride or Lyft line. A police officer saw/heard all this - he told the driver get in the car & told me NOT to get in the guy's car. The car sped off & I was charged a cancellation or no show fee. I sent Lyft photos of the license plate/vehicle which did not match the screen shot of the info displayed in the app. I was not provided a response or explanation. Did this person find/steal a legit Lyft driver's phone then fire up the app for fun or worse? Did a Lyft driver let someone else to use their app/driver credentials to pick up riders? Who knows. Definitely scary.
The cancellation fee was eventually credited to my account.
Misleading, messy and causes me to be late for work
When I got a Lyft and the driver’s car smelled absolutely disgusting, like vomit, I reached out to customer service to ask for a refund. It’s been almost a week and no one has gotten back to me. It’s also ridiculous that there is no public number or email to reach out to. You can only get help through the app and then you have to answer questions about your problem so you can be directed to an FAQ kind of answer. You’d have to click a vague option to get directed to a page where you can write to customer service. But then you’ll probably never hear back.
Today was the final straw. The map will show a few cars in my neighborhood and then when I request the ride, suddenly there’s only one car available and it’s all the way in a different borough. It says it’s 6 or 7 minutes away and then it keeps switching to “a different driver” who is also in a different borough every 2 minutes and then it’s another “7 minutes away.” It’s ridiculous that it would repeatedly connect me with drivers who are in different boroughs who aren’t actually willing to pick me up. This happens four times in a row and it needs to be fixed because I was going to be early for work and by the time I gave up on getting a Lyft and went with Uber instead, there was no way I could even get to work on time. With Uber, it said my ride was 4 minutes away and it actually came in 4 minutes instead of resetting over and over again with different drivers.
