Lyft, Inc. has put efforts and engineered a sophisticated ride app. What makes it successful? It is very easy to use for such a solid travel app with built-in sharing features. Well, as a top-performing app with an overall rating of 4.91 I can only add what people who have tried it are saying.
Since switching to Lyft, I no longer have to worry about possible “accidental” charges, or charges that have to be disputed on a very regular basis. I haven’t had to wait 15-20 minutes for a driver that decides to pick up someone else, leaving me waiting for another car. Many of the Uber drivers I had were nice, but I unfortunately the longer, more expensive rides , the drivers were rude, had disgusting cars that always seemed to have some type of mechanical malfunction happening. Uber drivers will take the call, and then take the longest possible route, or just go the wrong way, and whenever I have tried to suggest something different because I know where I live, I’ve had drivers respond in unacceptable ways. They seem to think that what they are doing is a favor for the rider, to a degree it is but I am paying for the ride, and depending on the time of day, I have paid ridiculous amounts to literally go 4 miles. The Uber drivers will push your pick up time, so that you have to ride in “peak hours”. Uber also has issues with overcharging, charging for a service multiple times, and obviously does not pay its drivers enough. I had sworn off car services, until LYFT, it’s been great, the drivers have all been amazing, clean cars, the drivers pay attention to traffic and get you to your destination as quickly as possible, and drive very safely. RIDE LYFT!!!!! ❤️❤️
I traveled for the first time to Austin, TX to visit friends, but due to a death in the family, I needed a Lyft after coordinating a hotel. The Lyft app indicated to go the Main Terminal, Red 4. The Austin Airport has signs indicating where to go for ride shares, so I followed those since there was no one at the Information Desk in the baggage area. The pick up area based on the airport signs led had signs indicating letters of the alphabet. I sent text message to the driver to advise me to where to wait since the folks I asked outside didn’t know where to go either. Eventually, an airport shuttle driver told me to go to the parking garage and to ‘follow the yellow cones’. I saw a sign indicating that I was in the red garage and snapped a photo of the sign because the elevator only went to level 3. Eventually I found a another worker in the parking garage who told me to go to the second level and near the letter J. There were cones there for ride shares. On the pillars, there were red numbers for Lyft on one side and blue on the other side for Uber ride shares. Nothing indicated ‘main terminal’. I disputed the $5 fee for a missed ride since the driver Vitali never responded to my text messages. The Lyft app said it would refund me, but it would take 5-7 days, so it remains to be seen if I’ll actually be refunded. I think the refund should have been instantaneous.
