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.

times are off  Mia555😬👸🏻😬  3 star

I take Lyft very often, and I don’t think there’s ever been a time where the estimated arrival time of the driver was accurate. It’s so bad that I have to plan my travel around the inaccuracy. Drivers have always been very nice, though.

Lyft beats everything  Luke Goula  5 star

Just when I thought I was an Uber guy, someone tells me about lyft and I never looked back.

What’s up with the price increase?  Jumalake  2 star

Every time I looked at the price of a ride I was planning in a few minutes, the price would steadily increase. Sure I get supply and demand, but this just seems like skimming pennies. Otherwise the app works well. I do think the fares are a bit overpriced compared to other apps. Also please don’t claim “half off” and then jack up the price. I am essentially paying the same as a regular ride.


Drivers don’t answer.  Nooo😭  1 star

Drivers don’t answer their phones when you try to find out where they are.

Gets me from A to Z  Holden Russell  5 star

Finally leaving a review. What can I say? I use it a lot. It gets me places. 5 stars!


Urber is much better  jamesonbu24  1 star

Their fairs may be cheaper than uber but the rides are far worse. Do not do shares with Lyft, twice in the same ride we got off the freeway and got back on doing the opposite direction, one for 8 miles on the opposite direction. Took over an hour to get somewhere 20 minuets away. uber shares is MUCH better.


So far so good except..  touchbenmeg  3 star

The delay in gps and lack of overall view for drivers to see drop off location seems off. Often drivers are having to turn around or go around pick up spots as gps seems to be tracking late. Other than that have felt safe and bad friendly drivers, somewhat new but friendly.


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!
