This easy to use program allows you to create an account, and request a driver to pick you up or drop you off at your chosen destination.
Complete peace of mind
Request a vehicle with the ride-sharing app. Why bother with car payments when you can request a Lyft whenever you need it.
Enjoy total peace of mind when you use this app.
When you book a driver to collect you, the driver’s info and car information will be displayed on your mobile device. This allows you to know the make and model of the car coming to collect you.
Riders can rate the driver and this gives other people an idea of what to expect before getting into a car.
Besides rating people, this program has a lot of other cool features. Every now and again you can snag an in-app discount, and you can request to be picked up regularly by a driver if you are trying to make Lyft part of your daily commute. Coupled with the fact that prices are artificially inflated due to increased demand; makes this one of the best ride-sharing apps available.
Overall this is a great app; however, there are a couple of drawbacks. Drivers may not be available in all areas, and for areas where there is coverage, there may not be enough operators to accommodate the need of the city you are in.
Where can you run this program?
This application is installable on Apple devices with a minimum of iOS 11.0. Additionally, this service is also available on Android devices that have the Android 7.0 or newer operating system.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes. Uber is a more widely used and trusted ride-hailing application. While Lyft is safe to use, more people gravitate towards using Uber because they are the more recognizable brand.
Lyft is a ride-sharing service with competitive prices, and it allows you to get less expensive fares, by sharing a ride with other people.
Should you download it?
Yes. If you have Lyft drivers in your area and want to be able to schedule regular pick-ups, this is the app for you.
