From here to there
Transportation making the most of technology is a given these days, but what if you could also save some of the cost of a taxi by grouping up with others and sharing a lift?
And back again
Travel around without the high cost of a taxi when you use Lyft, the easiest way to catch a ride from point A to point B.
One popular service that has popped up is taxi apps for your phone. This service gives you quick access to plan rides and gives you a lift at reasonable prices.
Lyft makes payment easy; they accept all major forms of payment. You can pay via Paypal, credit and debit card, Apple Pay, and Android Pay. Since Lyft only accepts online payments, cash is not an option. You will need to have money in your account whenever you order a ride.
When you place a request for a ride using this app, only your profile picture and first name is provided to the driver. Once the driver accepts, you can then see the same details from them. With this, you don’t have to worry about all your personal information getting exposed. After a ride, you can quickly rate your driver, and he rates you as well.
There are many options for rides that Lyft offers. The main ones include Line which shares the lift with other people, Plus which can seat up to six people, and Premier is a high-end car that lets you travel in style.
Your drive may occasionally be far away from you because they rushed to accept the Lyft request. This occurs because chauffeurs try to accept requests before it expires or is selected by other drivers. You should also confirm that the car that arrived is the one you ordered because if you hop in and go without asking, you will end up going to the wrong place.
Where can you run this program?
Lyft is available on devices using a minimum of Windows 10, iOS 10.0 or Android 5.0.0.
Is there a better alternative?
No. Lyft is a cheap way to travel around, but its pricing depends on your needs. Their major competitor is Uber, which offers similar services but you pay a more expensive fare.
Lyft is a great option for getting cheaper rides if you’re willing to share the vehicle with a stranger or two.
