    Lyft's review

    Published: 2014-06-09, by .

    Private, friendly drivers from here to there on the cheap

    • No need to wait for a taxi
    • Track your driver as the car comes to you
    • Drivers are all tested and ranked for security
    • Cars wear a big pink mustache
    • Only available in certain US cities

    "Taxi me not!"

    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.

    It was great at first, but now there's to many problems. My lyft sticks all the time and now i can't get a ride off the app. After all the bugs are fixed ill rate five star, but right now not worth it.

    I have a very active account with lyft but it seems like they care less about customer satisfaction they think that everything solves by adding $5.00 credit to the account or waiving the cancellation fee and show no real interest in the issues that is really disrespectful and shows that they have no appreciation for customers regardless of how much we spend or how often we use the service they are providing!
