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.

  • Great ride

    Courteous driver, pleasant ride
  • Not getting my rewards

    By ohenrithegreat
    I take lyft to work everyday during week...I have apparently earned a ton of rewards but lyft doesn’t let me access any of it...they say out the code in but they never send the codes...really disappointed with lyft...even tried contacting support but they never get back to me...the drivers have all been good but the service from lyft itself is below average
  • App misfire

    By 112443556887
    I scheduled a ride with a pickup window of 5:40-5:55 AM, and at 5:03 AM I began getting alerts through the Lyft app that my driver was en route and would be there in 18, 13, 15, 19, etc. minutes. It kept changing my driver, and also the pick up time (all of which were outside of my scheduled pickup window). All in all, the app woke me up before my alarm even went off, and it provided incorrect information continuously until the correct driver arrived within the scheduled window! I even tried restarting my phone but that didn’t change anything.
  • I love Lyft

  • Pick up issue

    By KatOsborn

  • lyft is trash

    By yAaaaas😻😻😻
    i’m sorry but i’ve been using this app for a while and the quality of drivers has gone down so much. the drivers are rude and expect you to still pay after they commit the error. you can’t exactly not pay, because in order to order another one, you must pay the fee first even though they messed up. drivers are rude and mean. get better drivers
  • Okay

    By nicki_jae
    Sometimes the ride can take up to 10 min to pick me up and I live in the city and then it may change drives up to 4 times then I had one guy call ask where I was going to see if it was with the ride to pick me up because he was so far
  • Very friendly and loves his job!! Rate Lyft 5 Plus

    By 35 yr customer
    5 PLUS Great driver
  • Wait forever and get a ride if lucky

    By TheLukeShort
    I wanted to use Lyft over Uber. I tried every way, but it’s impossible to use if you have to be anywhere at a certain time. It will connect me to a driver that is 20 min away, they will cancel or it’ll switch drivers and it’s no telling how long it actually takes before switching to Uber, but it never gives the correct wait time. Sometimes it’ll say a driver is 10 minutes away and they’ll be giving someone else a ride going in the opposite direction with the destination 20 min away. Just seems like with current technology and real time gps traffic, this shouldn’t be an issue. 2 stars because they do treat their drivers better from what I hear. I used Lyft because they give more discounts and it cost less, but after giving up, I’d rather pay more for Uber for reliability.
  • Good

  • Best driver ever

    By Jsnuary
    We had the beast Lyft driver Evers super nice.. cool. More than willing to detour us. Wish most drivers were like him ☺️
  • Extremely high price when ride at night

    By Michelle ji xinjia
    I know the price can go up if there is high demand. The price becomes extremely high when I get a ride from airport at night. The price is $140(usually $35) for a ride which is not even reasonable.
  • Consistently lower price than Uber!!

    By jinronf
    Even at peak times—Friday night. Lyft has lower prices than Uber.
  • Compared to Competitors

    By words70
    So far so good. Rates better by far and service much more prompt
  • Great ride

    By kan jsnz
    Really nice guy. It was a very pleasant drive.
  • Shared

    By stoplyingnicknametaken
    Lyft stated that I would be paired with someone going close to my destination, however it was not so and I got home later than I had anticipated. I could have taken the train and bus and got home the same time and save money.
  • New to Lyft

    By gerbear12345780
    Good experiences so far! Your drivers are the heart and soul of Lyft! Kudos to them!
  • Best connection-making service

    By Copple
    Thank you for making tonight possible. I was late for a surprise birthday party and couldn’t bike there in time. My driver confirmed quickly. His car was clean and smelled nice. I made it to my destination safely and in time to see every one of my friends. After too many hours spent at work, I needed it. I have nothing but good comments to share about Lyft.
  • This way better then Uber

    By jalilkaka
    I love it and always enjoy all the rides
  • Terrible drivers

    By profs556
    A driver named “M” (even they do not have a full first name) waited me somewhere different from pick up area. Then he cancelled the ride by himself and i had to pay cancellation fee for no reason. I wrote to Lyft but they even do not respond me back. Professionalism is much valuable than unfair 5$ !!
  • Bad routes

    By Woo Ni Ichi
    Why does the app take my driver the long ways

    By John CENNAAA
    LITERALLY charging me two diff prices for the SAME EXACT trip and it’s too overpriced . I thought lyft was better but I haven’t been getting my rides from lyft . Download both apps and use the cheaper PRICE
  • Thank you

    By shinscraper
    The Driver was very friendly and held great conversation with me.
  • The app does not work that good

    By jaylsssniw
    The app real don’t do a job with telling the Driver where to locate. Sometimes as a passenger I can’t call out
  • app is fine but customer support needs help

    By Dafort22
    When lyft works it’s great, however if you need help, have an issue or Nerf to talk to a human good luck.
  • Uber is no good

    By Bignigrow
    Great company
  • Delayed pickup

    By noicantbelieve
    Not sure why it took 15 minutes to get a diver to pick us up at ft Lauderdale airport. Next I will take a taxi that is just sitting there wait for us.
  • Lyft is great

    Loved our driver!
  • Lying about wait times

    By cd2129
    Lyft consistently lies about how far drivers are from picking you up. It’s a dishonest scam that’s almost frustrating enough to go back to Uber. It’s also super inconvenient. I’ve noticed the issue getting worse recently and my worry is that passengers ultimately take their frustration out on drivers when it’s the app’s fault for misleading them about wait times. Please correct this issue
  • Excellent

    By 45merrygoround
    Excellent service from my driver
  • Wait time

    By dezarae koksvik
    Why are the wait times getting longer?
  • Timing

    By yayyvqnjsywykwko
    Not accurate waiting times and long waiting times
  • Excellent Service

    Arturo provided my group with excellent service.
  • Inconsistent service

    By Teufelskatze101
    While Lyft seems to be working well most of the time, we have had major frustration with it around 7.30 am in our particular neighborhood. Every single ride we try to call that morning shows as at least 20 minutes away, and most of the time, realistically they are 30-40 minutes away. Some of the good drivers are kind enough to call ya to give us heads up about the complete miscalculation of arrival time. This seems to be happening every single morning around that time. My son needs to be at school by 8.30 am, and Lyft seems to be unable to provide reliable transportation at that time. We are probably going to try Uber to see if they have this area covered better in the mornings.
  • I love lyft

    By Greg Starr
    Lyft never disappoints I’ll take Lyft over Uber any day better drivers and better prices my experience has been wonderful in the 2 years I’ve been using Lyft two thumbs up..
  • Good job

    By wes34569
    Great helpful drivers. Great app!
  • The arrival time for Lyft at Newark airport are not accurate

    By 😞SP
    We have taken Lyft at least twice this year from Newark Airport. The arrival times are usually 2-3 times longer. If this is normal at airports than the app needs to update the algorithms for airports.
  • The app keeps freezing and sticking

    By keyknotes7
    Disappointed in the app because he keeps glitching and freezing
  • Not enough drivers anymore

    By McD of Team Z
    I’ve been using and liking this app for years but the wait times for drivers are just getting out of control. Might go back to Uber.
  • Lyft

    I use Lyft all the time. It’s very reliable and comes when it’s supposed to. Many of the drivers are very friendly, and I love to hear about their backgrounds and where they come from. Susie Q
