    Everything works great and makes me money but trying to keep my ratings up in LA is tough. Alot of passengers don't give 5 stars unless I break some law like speed, double park, cut off others or do illegal turns. Lyft line is worthless, I travel longer for less money. I just try to avoid any areas where Lyft line is available so my ratings go up, It works. Full Review

    Lyft has me drive across the Skyway bridge from St. Petersburg to pick people up in Bradenton and drive ALL the way to Sarasota. As I was desperately making my way back up to St. Petersburg, I got a call 20 mins out of my way to pick someone else up. I refused the pickup (because I knew it wasn't going to be worth it) and got points. I think it's ridiculous that there was no one else available in Bradenton to pick those people up. Lyft makes you drive for miles only to pick someone up and drive them down the street. Ridiculous! Full Review

    Our driver never came to Ride Share pick up lot at Boston Logan. After we left to walk to get a taxi, he called & said he was coming there. He went to Terminal A for some reason. Then I was charged $5 for cancelling. I will not be using this again. God bless reliable taxis. Full Review

    Been using 2 times per day, every weekday. So frustrating. Requires a phone restart at least 3 times a week. Drivers during surges are abundant yet prices still inflate. Have never heard from customer service after submitting a complaint or request for refund. Ever. Ridiculous. I would try Uber if I could, I'm sure they actually have a customer service dept. My advice: try Uber first. I spend $800 a month on this - better believe I'm bailing ASAP. Lowered rating again - algorithm is built to rip ppl off. Full Review

    I have no idea how this service has such good ratings. On 4 separate occasions I attempted to request a lyft only to end up with no car and 15-20 min of my life I'll never get back. I won't even take a free ride anymore. The GPS, estimated time, and fares are way inferior to uber. And uber has never left me stranded anywhere. My advice to everyone..Take an uber.. Even if you have to pay. UPDATE: THEY HAVE IMPROVED SERVICE SINCE LAST REVIEW Full Review

    This company is terrible and immoral. I refuse to give my money to a company who cuts drivers off from the livelihood without so much of a notice or reconsideration. At least uber gives the opportunity to be reinstated. I don't care if they're cheaper I refuse to give even one fraction of a penny to lyft Full Review

    Lyft is my favorite rideshare, hands-down & I love driving with them, too! Meeting such a diversity of folks daily is priceless! Customer/Driver Support has always been available. Give it a shot! ➡ Enter PROMO code: "PROJECTZACKO" for YOUR city's BEST current free ride promo! Then, just relax & enjoy the ride! ➡ CODE: "PROJECTZACKO" ✌ Full Review

    Said I had bad signal and that my ride had been cancelled but it hadn't and I was charged a $5 cancellation fee for something it said hadn't gone through in the first place. Then it wouldn't let me cancel the "current" ride so I had to delete and reinstall the app and only then did it show up. Full Review

    My car broke down this morning and I decided to schedule a Lyft driver so that my dog and I wouldn't have to miss her training class this afternoon. I checked the website and it said dogs are fine as long as you check with the driver first. I did this and the driver said it was ok. He pulled up in my driveway, saw my dog (who is a very sweet German Shepherd), said I told him it was a small dog (not true), and then pulled away. This whole ordeal could have been avoided if there was a comment section when you are booking the Lyft. I would have noted that I would be traveling with a German Shepherd and only drivers who were ok with that could have responded. And if no one was ok with it I would have known ahead of time and wouldn't have gone through the trouble of getting my pup ready to go. Full Review

    Extreme violation of privacy. Accesses your phone's ID, contacts, and other information on your phone. Before usage, you will be forced to give your phone number. Why does a .5 hour trip show as taking 3 hours?! Bad. Although works better than Uber, so better rated. Full Review

    I first tried another famous service and got the response, "A car is not available, try again later". Seriously? Not try again in 10 minutes, just try again later. So I tried Lyft and got a car in 5 minutes with a very friendly driver who insisted on helping me with my groceries. Who can beat that? Full Review

    Angel M Published date: June 21, 2017

    I would given a better rating if it werent for the simple fact that, whatever map Lyft uses is TERRIBLE. Constantly taking longer, or obscure, routes adding more time to my ride. Stop it, I don't like that. LUCKILY, only once did the driver not listen ti my request. All the other drivers I've had listened to my direction and not the Lyft. Full Review

    Like lyft just fine but don't have any interest in their recent price increase. These are not surge prices this a general price increase of about 5 dollars. Seeing as lyft riders are already expected to also tip their drivers this increase seems very inappropriate. Full Review
