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.

Bruh let me senf reviww

Kicked my sister out of car  Bruh let me senf reviww  1 star

Since when do you have to be 18 to get on a lyft ? And the part that makes me angry is the fact that you kicked her out of the car for not being 18 and then charged her an extra fee also thanks to that idiot she made it late to work . We are better off with Uber


Convenient.  returntocenter  5 star

Better than uBeR


Difficult  wittenbergk  1 star

Landed in NYC. First time using this app. Four drivers cancel ina row. Charges me. Double bills me. One driver cancels and takes someone right before me. I couldn’t cancel him without a fee. A mess! No support.

Downunder  Weygirl  5 star

Fantastic driver and very friendly!!!!! Mahalo



I also went through the whole startup process just to find out that I actually can’t use it. I wonder why the app can’t notify you when you enter your address? Disappointed :(


Waste of time.  Marcla76  1 star

Just downloaded the app from the Australian App Store. Went through all the signup process, gave all my personal details, then try and use the app and it’s not available in a small town like Sydney!!! Waste of my time. Back to Uber I guess.

This was my husband and my first time taking a Lyft and our driver Kum (in Hawaii) did an amazing job! He was funny, had food (for free!!), and just did an overall amazing job! We were very impressed with him!! We will definitely be taking Lyft again!!

Conversation  girlgirl18  4 star

Good conversation made ride home seem short. Very, very disappointed with Lyft when I had a bad experience with Robin Deaton in February. I was charged an extra $12.00! Tried to speak with someone at Lyft without success. Terrible customer service! Sharlene Thomas

Lyft vs Uber  Ken Cro-Ken  5 star

I always check Lyft and Uber prices but since Lyft always seems to have a better deal, (by far), I really don’t think I need to bother opening the Uber app. anymore. Funny but true! 👍👍


Uber to Lyft  meeoch  5 star

They partnered with Hilton... what can I say... I get Rewards now!


Worse version of uber  Ahajahshsj  1 star

Very flawed and expensive on the 'pool' service wen compared with uber


Horrendous  Clare261090  1 star

Terrible service! The drivers start the rides before they even pick you up so that they overcharge you! Trying to get in contact with customer service is impossible! I have drivers say they were two minutes away and have me standing outside for 15minutes!! Uber seems to be more reliable!
