"Taxi me not!"

Private, friendly drivers from here to there on the cheap

Tired of taxis? Wait no more with Lyft, the pink-mustache'd private car service that you can order at the touch of a button. It's currently only available in major U.S. cities, but is expanding all the time. Call a driver to your exact location even if you don't know the address, and you'll be able to track him or her as the car gets close to where you are. Drivers undergo background checks as well as DMV tests to ensure safety comes first. Rate your experience after getting dropped off to keep just the best drivers on the road. Discount codes are generally available for first-time passengers, so do some poking around for one and give it a whirl.

    *Use code 6TM3WL 1st ride free up to $25.00 * Two functions that would really be helpful. A refresh icon on the Driver mode screen. A volume control and tone selection for the Driver mode. I have every volume on my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 turned all the way up, and I can barely hear the tone when the request screen pops up. It is unsafe and unreasonable to think a Driver can stare at the app scree
