Running late for a party and don’t have a car? Maybe you should order a Lyft! Lyft is one of those few highly popular applications on both Android and iOS stores that can get you rides in a matter of minutes – and at affordable prices.

The Review

With Lyft, you can hail a cab in seconds anywhere anytime. It’s as easy as tapping in your location and your desired destination followed by a couple of seconds of waiting till the app connects you with a nearby Lyft driver. Once your rider arrives, you can start the journey and pay by cash or by your credit card.

Lyft makes it easier to reach your destinations quickly without having to wait in line to get a bus ticket or hailing a taxi – which by the way is more expensive as well. Lyft drivers are highly qualified so there’s really nothing to worry about as you enjoy your ride.

Competitors like Uber have been giving Lyft some tough time in the market but Lyft does have certain features that make it shine. For one, Lyfts provides a $1M liability insurance for its customers; something that Uber does not facilitate.

Other than this, Lyft works in a typical way: you download the app, create an account on it, give it your location permissions and select your destination. The driver arrives at your location in no time and you can then begin your travel.

Lyft has a number of perks that make it a user-friendly application and an app to have in times of crisis. Right off the bat, the biggest concern with such apps is the security. Are these services actually secure? Lyft maintains its excellent security and privacy standards by performing in-depth background checks on their selected drivers. Drivers that are directly approved by the authorities can be allowed to drive.

Another great feature of the app is ride sharing. You can split the fare fee with your friends easily or use promotion codes (promo codes) to get discounts on your rides. What’s more, your first ride with Lyft will be completely free! You can also pay with your credit card or debit card if you don’t have cash in hand. This makes Lyft an especially handy app if you’ve forgotten your purse or wallet at home or if you’re running short of cash.

But perhaps the biggest pro of Lyft and other similar apps over the standard cab is the price. Lyft offers rides at a much more affordable price than a taxi would. It might not be as cheap as bus fare but it definitely saves a lot of the hassle that’s involved with catching the bus, waiting in lines and huddling in crowded places.

Apart from hailing a ride and getting to your destination, this app is also used by those drivers who wish to earn a living from the service. After a thorough background check and DMV check is performed, you can starting working as a Lyft driver yourself and earn easy money in the comfort of your own car.

Lyft is free to use and offers a number of promo codes which can be used to get great discounts. As with any other app of its kind, however, the individual experience of the customer can vary. Customers have also complained of the recent update that does not allow them to update their destination once the ride has begun.

Why do we recommend this app?

  • It’s useful when you have no car and want to reach your destination fast without searching for a taxi or waiting in line for the bus
  • Cheaper than the local taxi rates
  • It offers a number of promotions that can be used to get discounts and even free rides

What can be improved in this app?

  • The latest update does not let users change or edit their destination once the ride has begun which can be inconvenient at times.
