    Have been using Lyft for many years. Recently however I rode with a driver that was a maniac. Speeding, taking different routes than what was on Google Maps, and telling me to leave the car when I complained. I definitely felt unsafe. The worst part is that when I tried to call Lyft to warn them about this dangerous driver I was unable to reach anyone by phone. They make it so complicated to reach a human operator. So I decided to submit a compliant online and noted to them to call me. It's been over 2 weeks and all I've got is an auto-reply email. Lyft apparently doesn't care much about the safety of their riders!! Full Review

    This app is fooling ppl, shows cheap rate and then drives u through long way in middle of ur ride. I was not aware of this app but my friend told me after I missed Uber cab. 4 out of my 2 rides turns to be resulting long route and that resulting pays me in double, so for 50% ride I paid double. AWAKE BEFORE LOOKING AT GOOD RATING. Up to you guys to take thuth . Full Review

    I drive for Lyft. The only problem I have as a driver is the. Fact that it accepts a Lyft line for you it doesn't give you an option and I wish that if your matched up with a driver / passenger that you like that next time the passenger could request that same drivet Full Review

    I would have given it the 5 stars this app deserves, But lately you keep sending drivers from other city's. Which makes no sense in my book. I can't even cancel the ride. Without being charged Full Review

    Won't keep the address. I submit something like DTW North Terminal and the app defaults to taking me to downtown Romulus. I've had this happen a few times where the driver says my address is just to "downtown". Basically once you select an address it snaps back to just a city. It's a bad big that needs fixing.

    Not so easy to use. Most of my attempts to use Lyft I fail. Either user interface issues or inability to properly identify my location both for the driver or the system. I am referring to airport locations. Full Review

    Suggestions: Allow the user to save certain drivers they have gotten service from, so when those drivers are in the area and available the user can select who they want (example: Scan feature). Also allow the drivers to rate rider's. Note this may take down the "War Stories" a notch but it adds safety and security for your drivers. Review: Other than suggestions this is a great app. Full Review

    Wow, do you hire who ever walks in? Seems like it! I've almost been hit by several of your driver's. I won't ever use this service after seeing how you people drive. I was reading reviews and people say the same thing. First off you guys are like everyone else if not worse having a horrible job like this. You know how many lyft drivers I kick out of the fire lane??? You know what they say I'm a lyft driver so it's fine........are you a fire truck? No? Why are you so special you get to but no one else ah I get it bc your lyft. 2nd make your driver's take a driving test......it's sad out of everyone on the road I'd think a taxi service would be the best at driving. I've almost been hit by numerous lyft and uber drivers both company's suck. Book driver at risk of death! Full Review

    This service is not worth the time and headache. I don't even think they actually screen half of their drivers. I've had the worst customer service and you can't even get to a person.you have to go through email and that's only if they choose to answer. I will not recommend nor try this service ever again. I wish there was a way I could give zero stars for this service. Full Review

    The app glitches. I have walked to drivers whose car was presented on my app screen who did not have me as their passenger. On lyft line, they detour for passengers several miles. I don't like uber workplace philosophy, but when I need a ride to the airport or something, I can't rely on lyft. Full Review

    Lyft sucks big time! Their GPS seems to never locate my house. I always waste time explaining to the drivers where I am. And they always take the longest route ever they even lose track of where we are supposed to go. It doesn't even make sense... I'm going back to Uber. Full Review

    The referral website does not take a cell phone number properly and the promo campaigns are garbage. I got one expecting a free ride and got $2 off a trip instead and i can't trade it for a better deal. This is not a service that has many cars where i live so it won't be useful and i will never use this system again. Full Review

    Absolutely could not add PayPal as an option. Tried multiple times without success. No error messages, and no problems on PayPal's side. No PayPal = no business. I'll go see if Uber knows how to properly set up their payment options. Full Review

    Unbelievable. Former Driver. Was removed for not passing the states background check. Then months later, state changes law to allow me to drive again. Just to get played again this time by Lyft suspending my account even do I pass ALL OF THE REQUIREMENTS. They give generic answers to my concerns. Literally treated me like a DOG. How Do I get removed 3 times over a License suspension that occured 6 Years ago. Use Fasten. Full Review
