Lyft: When You Need A Lyft

When you need a Lyft just open up your Lyft app and request a ride.  Sometimes this app is cheaper than Uber if Uber prices are surging. Lyft rides are a little more laid back than with Uber, typically you ride in the front and the drivers for Lyft are often riders as well, making it truly a ride sharing app.

It’s smart to have both Uber and Lyft on your phone and check Lyft if Uber’s prices are surging. First time users also get some credit for their first ride.

Uber is the easiest way to get around and usually it’s cheaper than a taxi and more reliable too. I find when I take a taxi I never know if the taxi is going to show up if I call the dispatcher. With Uber you can track the arrival status of your driver by watching the map on the app. With traditional taxis you get taken on a the “scenic route” sometimes in areas you are unfamiliar with, but with Uber you get emailed a map of the route you took so you can’t get ripped off. Recently I was in a non-Uber city and took a taxi and the fare was $17 (With Uber it would have been $10) and I had a twenty dollar bill and the driver responds “I don’t have change?!” WTF, I, as the rider, am supposed to provide exact change when I don’t even know what the fare is going to be??? With Uber you connect your account with your paypal account or credit card and there’s no cash exchanged. No one has to make change. Easy.
