    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.

    What people are saying:

    "Ride-sharing programs like Lyft are providing commuters with less expensive and more social ways to get around. Users log into the app, specify where they’re heading, and a background-checked driver picks them up for less than a typical cab ride." - TODAY Show

    “Lyft is a real community — with both the drivers and riders being inherently social — making real friendships and saving money.” – Time

    "In a city where taxis can be scarce and… black town cars are rampant but expensive, Lyft has quickly gained visibility due to low prices and quirky branding." - Ad Age

    "Lyft's focus on the everyman has recently extended to the wildly successful Lyft Line carpool service aimed at commuters, which offers discounts of 30% to 60% for sharing a Lyft ride with others." - Fast Company

    Prices vary based on market condition.
