Choose your destination, find a ride in seconds, and pay directly in the app. It’s that simple.

We want to make sure every ride is as comfortable as it can be so that you can sit back and relax. With guidance from public health officials, we’ve created health safety requirements to help protect everyone in the car.

The app worked well for my early rides. However, it caused me to overpay for two recent rides. In both cases I chose a ride that was showing one price, but when I accepted it, I was charged more. The first overcharged me by around $6, but the second by about $40. The app claims to have help to allow you to resolve issues, but if they don't fit in a preselected set of bins, the best you can get is, "please provide feedback to help us with future rides" - only preselected feedback allowed.

Used to love the app, I have never once had a problem with a driver. For the last month I've had problems with the app and the app only. I can't even know when my ride is here, it goes back and forth, I've even heard drivers complain about the glitches. Plus can't send a complaint to the actual company, all the options are just shifting blame, might switch to a better app.

Great when it works, but God help you if you need to type anything. Keyboard support has been broken for ages, if you don't have your locations on speed dial you suffer. It'll focus on a text box then suddenly unfocus and you lose the keyboard...repeatedly. Only way around is long press and copy-pasting from a note app into Lyft, and even then it sometimes refuses to see that you entered what they want.
