    Selecting destination from drop-down enters something else entirely (eg: just plain Brooklyn when I clicked on the street address). No bug report system anywhere, categories in "contact us" don't have a "issue with the app" entry. I don't mind the bug so much as not being able to report it. Full Review

    After rigistering an waiting for the cab i find out Lyft and uber only accept cards they can continuesly stick charges to on top other charges. I don't know about you but I wouldn't trust that. Ty for stranding people and their kids on one of the coldest nights in jc. Doubtful they even care for their customers or prepaid cards wouldn't be an i issue . .. untill the prepaid card issue is fixed if they ever do fix it I really wish I could rate --10 .and report to bbb.

    First try super useless, trying to set up ride in another city, find out if available and price; app couldn't work at all with a different city, like I just need a ride from where I am. Or either not easy to figure out. Fingers at my mouth, hailing a TAXI !!! Full Review

    Some of these drivers will just sit there for a long period of time on purpose just so the customers can cancel. As a customer I believe that is very unfair especially im a loyal customer. Then when going to a short distance or route the prices are ridiculously outrageous. Smh... Im sorry Lyft is not what it use to be when I first had it. Full Review

    I signed up to request car service when I need it. I get way too many notifications of sales, promos, credited, etc. It has become a bother. And you know what they say about the man that offers his service for less... He knows what it is worth! Full Review

    Cannot enter pick up destination. When I type the address and press the magnifying glass to search, the app does nothing at all. Since I cannot enter pick up address properly and cannot drop a pin, the app is completely useless at this time Full Review

    Take lyft if you want to go on a city tour. Extremely inefficient routing system. It's a shame because drivers are really nice to me yet I'm stressed because my ride took 40 instead of 15 min. Full Review

    Monkey Trainer Published date: December 9, 2017

    Lyft sends drivers request from passengers 25 to 35 minutes away. These are far too often very short trips. Thusly drivers often earn less than $5 an hour chasing these trips to preserve their acceptance rating. No Lyft is sending drivers on trips then canceling it and giving the trip to other drivers. This cost the initial driver money in the form of gasoline and time they are basically scooping the trip and giving it to another driver. This is unethical and there needs to be a class action lawsuit against these people. Full Review

    I used to like the app. It helped me get home fast and easy after a late night at work. But in the last year they have gouged the prices and it isn't a little bit, it's a massive jump. I'm using uber a lot more and they don't go as far as lyft goes. Full Review

    I loved it at first; but it keeps taking me to the driver app and I can't always order a lyft. Also, it wouldn't let me change a pick-up address in order to get my son in law from work. I wanted to like it...can't. 😞 Full Review

    noob alot Published date: December 15, 2017

    Setting destinations is utterly broken. When you type in an address, it shows a list of suggestions. Tap on one, and your destination changes from the address to the center of the city, which can be miles away from the address. Contacted support several times and they don't or refuse to understand the issue. Full Review

    Awesome service, but everything has it's flaws. I've been denied service on more than one occasion telling me my payment can't go through, and I've entered other payment methods and it's told me to use a valid card. So, those things have caused me some trouble but other than that it's really great. Full Review

    Anti Mechanistic Published date: December 16, 2017

    The service is great with good drivers and good billing, but it is unusable for us because their first line tech support stinks. There are multiple Google Maps errors that send people to nearby dead end streets. I had to call the drivers as soon as I got their contact info and all but 2 of 8 were at the dead end locations given by their GPS. When I tried to explain the problem to a first line tech he refused to do anything about it, to pass it on or to let me speak to his supervisor. I can't use the service because of a stupid employee.

    Heather Morgan Published date: December 18, 2017

    It's cheaper than Uber which is great because I think Uber is overpriced in my area for local rides. This is probably because they have more drivers in my area than Uber, so they're not driving as far to come pick me up. However, I'm not able to schedule my pickup time or rides in advance. I don't like waiting til the last minute, so this makes me nervous. Until Lyft adds the option to schedule my ride ahead of time, I'd rather pay a little more and use Uber so I know for sure someone is available at a specific time. Full Review

    App is ok but the line routes are hot garbage. It seems it would be better to pick ppl up that's on the way or same general area. In Atlanta the lines bounce you all over the city in ways that just make zero scene. Full Review

    Their drivers are really starting to fake pick-ups as well as cancel rides too often, and they still get payed. Then, lyft will only give you partial credit on your account for these rides. They Never give you your money back. I even called and spoke to someone in their costomer service department last week. I still don't even have a CREDIT back from a driver who left me in the rain, but claimed they picked me up. The drivers blame "The App". Its so damn stressful and I no longer trust them. I'm now thinking of trying Juno or going back to Uber. I think I'm officially done with Lyft. Full Review

    Josiah Yeung Published date: December 13, 2017

    Although Lyft has better customer service than Uber, Lyft prices are usually worse since tip isn't included in trip costs, and Lyft can be horrible at matching drivers and co-riders for shared rides. For the last two mornings and on other occasions, Lyft has added co-riders to my trips to work that required straying way away from the route and going out of the way to get people that were 6 or more blocks away. I don't mind having to go a block or two backward to get a new co-rider, but six or more blocks can add a lot of time to a ride. I've been late for work a bunch of times because of this, despite giving myself ample time to get there. Until Lyft's matchmaking improves, I am leaving my rating at a 2. Full Review

    So excited to try this in Toronto, and I'm so disappointed. Wait time changed as soon as I scheduled the ride, and based on where the driver was coming from (other side of the damn city) it wasn't at all accurate. 10+ minutes for a ride that initially said 6 :( Full Review

    Very untrustworthy for uber and lyft purposely left a 50 and asked for the return for reward and both drivers claimed thet hadent seen anything just be wery of your personal belongings. If its worth anything your not getting it back. Full Review

    Brittany W Published date: December 15, 2017

    It will not bring up driver mode. Instead, it comes to a screen for "application status" which says 100%. All my documents and background check have cleared. The app, and site did not ask for my background check signatures. It wasn't until contacting support that I was sent the emails to fill those out. Now everything is complete and it still wont go past this screen. Full Review

    At this time, it's really just cheaper to take a cab... which, I think, defeats the initial purpose of lyft. Yesterday, I was quoted $20 for a trip that usually costs $5-$7. I'll start lyfting again after the holidays. Full Review
