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.

Drivers Always Lost  LobsterSayce  1 star

I tried switching from Uber to Lyft and 2/2 my drivers have become lost on their way to the pickup point. My pin will be around the corner and they'll go a block away. Switching back to Uber where they show up to the right place.

App is worse but drivers and company are better!  DaleAnthony  5 star

I have used both Uber and Lyft. I still prefer the Uber app but am happier with the Lyft drivers and have far more respect for the company! Lyft leadership care about their employees, including their drivers, whether they are male or female. I recommend using Lyft whenever possible.

Thanks  TNoelleBtown  5 star

I appreciate that, from what I've read, Lyft seems to treat its drivers better than Uber. Please continue to value and respect your workers!

The best!  Jodi Astoria  5 star

I have never had one issue with Lyft and won't use Uber as long as that remains true. Excellent service.


Switch from Uber to Lyft last month  luckychrms  5 star

Uber was getting ridiculous with all the technical issues they were having. I couldn't order rides anymore without having connectivity issues or "request failed" issues I have been using Lyft for the last month and it's been working great.
