"Taxi me not!"

Reviewed by / Jun 09, 2014

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.

But after trying to be responsible for a holiday party and leaving my car at home, I was left high and dry without a ride or even the slightest indication of when I might be able to get one.
