    There are a lot of promo codes available but they usually won't disclose fine prints. You can enter only one promo code, which cannot be replaced or deleted. Also, it shows only a price range, not the exact price for the ride. Then, it charges you the higher price beyond original price range. That simple fact makes Lyft a fraud company. Not obvious to use. Shared my phone number with strangers. Full Review

    Problems with customer knowing when I've arrived. Usually it will come up after I've pricked them up and have been driving for a while. Especially with line rides. Also when it's busy I'll loose the customer on the app. Then after going in an out of the app they'll pop back up. Lastly, when staging at the airport. For instance I'll be number 88 . Then there will be no info as to what number I am. Then it will come back up and I'm number 99. That's rather aggravating when I've been there already for 15 mins. waiting. These are some of the things I've noticed and have spoken to other drivers about. Thank you for everything. Keep up the good work. Full Review

    This is app is not really first user friendly. We changed to Lyft since UBER no longer takes my credit card. The setup was easy but when it came time for our driver to arrive, not only did the driver know how to verify that my card was charged and then I got charged $5 for missing my ride even though we didn't. the driver was here trying to help us with the app. Not only did we get frustrated but the driver got frustrated and ended up allowing us to pay cash since I was charged for missing the ride even though I didn't. The app only gave a split option. Need to make the payment information easier to access and teach your riders how to use the app so they are able assist the rider better and not charge someone for missing a ride when they didn't and have an option available for round trip as well.

    DO NOT USE THIS APP- GO TO UBER! After taking a ride (and leaving a tip) I was charged an extra $5 from Lyft. When I asked them what it was for they told me to contact my bank... Even though I sent a copy of the statement that clearly shows it is from Lyft. They couldn't even explain what it was for. If I wanted to leave a $8 tip for an $11 ride I would have! Full Review

    My favorite rideshare (as both a Rider & Driver) period. Interacting with such a wide diversity of folks on a daily basis is just priceless! Support has always been great, friendly & prompt. Lyft is very convenient, too. Give it a shot! ➡ Enter PROMO code: "PROJECTZACKO" for YOUR city's BEST current FREE RIDE(S) offer! Enter code BEFORE ordering 1st ride, then, well... just sit back (or up front), relax & enjoy the ride! 👉 PROMO CODE: PROJECTZACKO (BEST *current* offer for new passengers, in ANY city, always). 😊 PROJECTZACKO Full Review

    Great service, and most of the app is good, but the ridiculous marketing notifications that you can't turn off are a deal breaker. After getting one at 3:30 am, that's it. Uninstalling. Full Review

    The only thing is the promo promotion that you have it doesn't give the other person her money all the time and she's referred a lot of people and I know it and I didn't get my money nor did she get my money get her the money for downloading the new app and using it Full Review

    were supposed to give a price up front that never happened they wanted my address so they could achieve this price ...when I'm just trying to get information now I'm scared because they are sending some stranger without verifying a price or answering any other questions I had this is why I didn't use it in the past and unfortunately I'm disabled and my options are extremely Limited Full Review

    The first time I used Lyft was very different for me. But the more I used it I realize how convenient it was for me to get me around. There's some places you can't walk to or ride the bus to. I always got picked up and dropped off at the time it said I would be. Won't be using Lyft much as I use to as I am getting my own car. But I might end up joining on as a driver. Very good job guys...keep it up...also loved the $3.49 deal you had. You should do those more often 😊. Full Review

    DO NOT DOWNLOAD! This company is wrought with fraud, do not trust any of your information with them! I have spent hours and hours on the phone with my credit card company disputing charges that they can't stop because lyft has a backdoor agreement with visa to push charges thru. Don't let them steal your money! STAY AWAY Full Review

    Lynn.A.k.A Mj Published date: August 11, 2017

    Too expensive.... once it catches on to you going to the same destination it jacks up the price, then they tell you its because of traffic when the app clearly tell you its self its that its the "usual" traffic on your route, then when you complain they tell you its because it wasnt alot of driver's when once again the app shows you the multiple drivers in your area.... lyft is a scam! And no you dont get discounts and they dont refund your money when they make a mistake they keep it till your next ride and use it on that as if it was a credit when it was your money in the first place...

    The service is fine, depending on the driver. The app has push notifications with no option to turn them off (one star down). Also, it queries the GPS continuously, even after you close the app (second star down). I discovered this when my phone alerted me that my battery was nearly dead just TWO HOURS after my ride. I had to reboot to get it to stop. Full Review

    I will probably NEVER take Lyft again. They locked my account without telling me. I've only taken Lyft three times. I was almost late for work because I didn't find out my account was locked until I hit the "set pickup" button. It was such an inconvenience. I hope Uber treats their customers better because Lyft doesn't. Disgusting. Full Review

    Discount offers are a joke. They raise the price by the discount so you are just paying standard price. Also can't zoom on enough on the map so have to guess if it got your location accurately enough. Uber is better thought out app. Full Review

    I HONESTLY HATE THIS DAMN APP! How are you going to give information at the last minute if your pickup?! People have places to go! I got work and they tell me 5 minutes before my ride is suppose to get here that my account has been freaking deactivated and I still have gotten absolutely no work back yet! Forget this app! Just get an Uber! Full Review
