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.

Great info! Thanks for sharing.

Love this app. Very easy to use and tip etc. Only improvement would be if I ask to be picked up, it needs to let me know to accurately pin point from where. There was no tutorial advising on this and my first few rides confused the driver. Also the map doesn't always show me the street names or landmarks for me to know what pick up I am suggesting, especially when i am away from home

Lyft doesnt reprimand dangerous drivers when you complain, and they don’t have the ability to verify the driver drove dangerously or illegally. I had a driver stop to make a left hand turn, from the opposing traffics left hand turn lane. It resulted in a line up of cars ahead of us, and the inability to see oncoming traffic. We then swerved back onto our side of the road, luckily missing those cars which were trying to turn left across our lanes. This driver decided to yell at me when I pointed out a safer route to him. When I emailed Lyft about the situation, they simply stated I would not be matched with that driver. This tells me the Lyft does not care about my safety, or it doesn’t have the ability to verify my claim.

Hi, Last night when I took Lyft Pool, it took 10+ minutes longer than projected. Understandably there is a buffer, but this was significantly greater than indicated to me originally. I would have preferred to take transit for free. Is there an opportunity to receive a credit for this ride?

Couldn’t really tell how far he was going, but $7 seemed steep for what seemed like he was just going down the block. Lol

Downloaded from the NZ app store, took me through all the signup, including entering a NZ phone number, only to be told it doesn't operate in NZ, but I should get ready for my first ride anyway. How long should I wait outside?

RSG - when booking a lyft ride with a stop to pick up a parcel, do you put the final destination in first and then add the parcel pickup location as a stop? or ?
