Lyft - Review & Install Links

Lyft is one of the new generation taxi services, making it available for passengers to catch a taxi with maximum comfort and for drivers to earn. Being the major rival to Uber, Lyft is not as global yet, but if you’re lucky to live where it functions, there’s no reason not to download Lyft and try it.

Where Do You Want To Lyft Today?

It’s as simple as can be with Lyft to order a taxi. Your location is detected automatically with location services; anyway, you may appoint it manually if you plan to move before the taxi arrives, or you want to make an order for somebody else coming to meet you. Then you define your destination on the map or typing in the address. Before you place your order, the app shows you available car classes and estimated cost for each of them, so you can select.

As the service connects the drivers around and someone accepts your order, you receive a notification with car info and approximate meeting time. You can contact the driver from within the app to discuss the details. No need to bring cash; just connect your credit card, and you’ll be charged automatically after you get to your destination.

It all sounds very familiar, because that’s the default scheme for taxi service in 2019.

It’s a bit more complicated if you are a driver planning to earn with Lyft. The service requires checking your background and passing corresponding tests, and if you pass them, you can access requests and respond to them. After a ride, the passenger and the driver can rate each other, so later drivers and passengers can opt for those with higher rates.

Reality Impact

The scheme described above is working perfectly in a perfect word. But if you download Lyft and start using it in reality, you’ll encounter some inaccuracy in its estimations. Roads can be too jammed, and your ride can take more time than expected, influencing waiting time and ride cost. Yet, despite this correction, it’s hard to find a really negative Lyft review in app stores. Most of the time the service works as expected.

Pros

⇒ Easy to call a taxi and to pay for your ride;

⇒ Available in many countries;

⇒ Frequent discounts and coupons;

⇒ Rating system increases safety.

Cons

⇒ Unavailable in certain countries yet;

⇒ All the estimations (time, cost) can be inaccurate.
