    Sooooo normally you guys would get a five star from me because I have been using this app religiously since I've gotten my new job and I usually always have a great experience. However, the app is not accepting ANY of my THREE methods of payment that I use all the time. It keeps saying that they are invalid even though Uber accepting them just fine after I had to switch to that service to prevent Myself from getting to work late. Uber is expensive and charges a bunch of extra fees so I would rather stick with you guys but if this bug isn't fixed, I will be switching services Full Review

    I honestly LOVE this app! I've used it TWICE here in Lexington, KY. At first,I didn't think that it would accept my credit card info because Uber won't accept it for whatever reason, but I'm glad Lyft did. And the drivers are so super friendly and pleasant and are very helpful. To hell with Uber! Lyft is the way to go! ❤✌😊 Full Review

    Why is left more expensive that uber?!! And why did lyft charge me more than what I had to pay for on a ride. I had changed my location to something closer and they still charged me more when they should have charged me less because I changed my location to something closer than the original destination. Still WHY IS UBER NOW CHEAPER THAN LYFT!!! YOU JUST LOST A CUSTOMER Full Review

    My favorite rideshare (as a Rider & Driver) period. The opportunity to meet such a diversity of folks on a daily basis is just priceless! Support has always been friendly & prompt, without exception; often contacting me first just to ask how things went. Top notch! In many cities, rides can be scheduled well in advance. ***Promo! ➡ Enter PROMO code: "PROJECTZACKO" for YOUR city's BEST current FREE RIDE(S) offer! Just enter code BEFORE ordering 1st ride, then, well... sit back (or up front!) relax & enjoy the ride! 👉 PROMO CODE: PROJECTZACKO (BEST *current* offer for new passengers in ANY Lyft market, period!) 😊 PROJECTZACKO Full Review

    They accept my prepaid debt card. While uber does NOT. At least I can catch a ride here with it 💯 haven't booked a car or anything yet. But knowing they accept my payment method is amazing and I can't wait to use them Full Review

    Lyft is ripping me off 2 multiple times they charged me.Some drivers take the lonest route to get to your destination to raise the fair. Just updated the app and kept pressing request ride and nothing works on my s8 plus.Lyft is great and wish they would give the customers who been with them for years promo codes just like they do new users. I tried to get a ride to get to work. lyft kept saying update payment options when I had money. Full Review

    DON'T TRY TO SET THIS UP IN AN EMERGENCY! I tried to use this app but they blocked my account instantly. I tried to contact them to get the account reinstated but they never responded. In short. They suck. Full Review

    I really enjoy the app. However the time estimates for pickup are so vastly inaccurate that it causes frustration every single ride I take, thus the three stars. I'm trying to pick between Uber and Lyft - this is not helping. Full Review

    LYFT50J" - $50 bonus as new rider  🚗🚙 First of all, If you haven't signup for rider then use this code "LYFT50J" to get $50 cash. I love using this App all the drivers I've come in contact with have been great! The rates are reasonable, you can tip, even add multiple stops! Easy to use and user friendly app. Prices also looks much lower with others.  Very good compatible with Iphone 6 and Iphone 7. Here is some improvements they can do it in future apps : 1) Getting driver pair to far where we already has available driver just beside us 2) Need apple map and apple watch support 3) Sometime location map does not display real time information 4) Sometime getting lots of notification where sometime not getting important notification.

    For the most part it's okay. Really inconvenient when it surges. Especially when you're trying to get home safely from the bar. I think they really take advantage of those who are under the influence. And it costs soo much. Why not give deals to those who use it frequently Full Review

    Spammy notifications, as others also reported. After the first use, I had to uninstall the app to stop the notifications. I reinstalled it for 2 more rides and the promo notifications are getting annoying enough that it will get uninstalled again soon unless they add another way to stop them. 3 stars for the spammy app; so far on 3 rides the drivers have each earned 5 stars.

    Since I don't drive, it's very convenient, inexpensive to me & paying for my ride is simple,option to tip. I like & use ride estimate a lot & I like it when they give me discounts. I really don't understand all of the complaints I see on here. No, I never used Uber cuz of the "no background checks" on drivers, which Lyft does. Everytime I needed customer service, company respond immediately. So far, to me, keep up the good work Lyft.👍 Full Review

    App sucks. Always crashing. Example if you order a ride and then lose internet connection and then get it back..the application won't reconnect. So you have to reboot the phone. Drivers are great but application sucks. Full Review

    I requested a refund because the driver didn't end the ride and drove for about an hour or so. They said they will refund it but I never received my refund. I have to call my bank to dispute the charge. Use Uber instead, never had a problem. Full Review

    It surges on you when there's no drivers out Best part is getting emails from the lyft company saying you get a 10% off redeem coupon, it then it says that its already been used up when you enter it EVEN IF ITS ON THE SAME DAY YOU RECEIVED IT IN THE EMAIL 2 stars still feels like I'm being too generous Full Review

    Lyft is the company to beat. 100% of the drivers I have spoken with over the last 10 months, who drive for both of the two big players, prefer Lyft and this app paired with their administration are just some of their reasons. Good job, Lyft. Full Review

    Lyft has given me terrible experiences since returning to Austin. After waiting 5 minutes with no ride, I decided to cancel and restart to see if there was a mistake that would be fixed. The price of my ride doubled ($10.30 to over $19) despite no change in route and my estimated trip time increased by 20 minutes for a 4 mile trip. The absolute lack of consistency in pricing and and trip time is unacceptable. The trip before that was an estimated 15 minute trip that took an hour. Instead being given one of the nearby drivers I was shown, I was assigned somebody 10 minutes further away. After 5 minutes they were no closer and I was given another driver who was further away from me than my initial trip was estimated. We were then rerouted backwards to pick up another rider on a detour taking nearly as long as the initial trip was estimated. I could have walked almost as quickly as the trip took, but at least they didn't increase the price of the trip as part of the terrible, slow experience. I will be uninstalling the app for it's inconsistent pricing and terrible method of matching riders with drivers. Full Review
