    Used Lyft for the first time today when Uber wouldn't accept two different payment types two days in a row. Needless to say, I had my Uber account deleted and will only use Lyft from now on. The interface is simple to use and the setup was easy. I was able to get a ride in NYC in under two minutes from start to finish. Full Review

    Terrible customer support. Have been trying to communicate with them for two months to settle account issue and they sent a canned response and that's it. We keep emailing back and no one responds to fix the problem. Unbelievable! Full Review

    Initially I liked the app better than uber....lately the app has experienced a lot of latency. It told me a driver was 7 mins away then when I closed it twice it told me he was 2 mins away. The driver also had issues with the app. Not the best experience😑 Full Review

    Lyft is ripping me off 2 different rides they charged me.Some drivers take the lonest route to get to your destination to raise the fair. 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

    Terrible. First ride was great. Second ride the initial driver said he was "here" and he was not. So I had to cancel him with a warning that i would get a fee next time. So I did cuz guy was no where near me. Second driver came. All was good until I got the bill for 66 rather than the initial 41-49 as quoted by the app. Reached out Friday to the company with no response from them. Full Review

    I feel like I was scammed. This company doesn't respond to your concerns. Especially since it's my money that you are taking. I urge you to look at the amount Lyft takes out if your account. Full Review

    I'm done with Lyft. They don't care about their customers and only want to correspond though email which seems like an automated response. You can never speak with a live person. I'm never using Lyft again. They lost a customer for life Full Review

    I've been dealing with User's BS for too long. Being able to request a pickup time makes this App 1000x better than User's "Hurry Up And Wait" policy their drivers all seem to have. Full Review

    I just had the awful experience of being STRANDED AT THE AIRPORT BY A LYFT DRIVER!!! This shady Lyft driver is named Azhar driving a Silver Honda Pilot, and he never arrived to pick me up even though Lyft told me he was 6 minutes away, and then Lyft said that he had arrived. After 30 minutes of not seeing his vehicle arrive, I called him three times and he did not answer his phone. I was unable to cancel the ride and request a new driver. I was also unable to contact a live Lyft rep, so I had to email Lyft "customer support". To make matters unbelievably worse with this awful Lyft experience I saw Azhar pull up after I had waited over an hour and was never contacted by him. I wasn't sure it was him because it was obvious that he was trying not to pull up near me so I could recognize him. I looked at him and then saw an Uber sign on his rearview mirror. Another passenger got in his vehicle, and when he drove off I saw it was him because the license plate matched my Lyft driver profile. Azhar didn't want me to see his shady and trifling behind because he knew he had left me stranded at the airport to drive for Uber tonight! I also blame Lyft for this awful customer experience because they should make sure the driver is actually driving for Lyft instead of Uber before assigning them to a passenger!!!! Full Review

    Terrible, buggy and unresponsive software. The "line" algorithm is garbage and often matches people who are going in nearly opposite directions. Drivers are often morons who just stop in the middle of their trip to pick you up and won't answer calls. Just use Uber. Full Review
