    Pretty sure Google Play offers geofencing to prevent app installation in countries where its services are not available. Couldn't find any ride so I assume it's not available here in the "💩 hole" I'm stuck for the foreseeable future. You had to no problem in charging my credit card with your verification fee, though. Will I be reimbursed for this charge, at least? Can't even remove my card. Needless to say, uninstalling. I'm sure the app's better than the other competitor with the fake German name which shall not be named, but since I can't properly use your app, don't think I can give it a proper rating.

    I decided to order a lyft for my brother to pick him up from work and bring him home. There was a driver who was literally 8 mins away from his destination. The driver called me to tell me she was too far and asked if I could cancel the ride. I told her I would do it and find someone else. Then I noticed that I was charged $6 for canceling. The driver never attempted to pickup my brother, but yet I had to pay $6 for canceling a ride that SHE asked me to do. I'm really disgusted. Honestly, don't make the same mistake I did either delete lyft or never cancel because you will only be cheated. Full Review

    I booked a ride then immediately needed to cancel it. I hit cancel ride about 20 times and then when the ride showed up and left I still got charged a fee!!!!!! Then I emailed customer service saying it wasn't my fault and they gave me a credit on my account which has since expired. I want my $5 back, it isn't my fault the app refused to accept my cancellation and then the driver wasted their time. Full Review

    Great service, but made worse by the cheap tricks the company tries to pull. Worst one is that they fake the map in the loading screen and underestimate how long it will take for a driver to pick you up. Sometimes, when you order a ride, it adds as much as 15 minutes to the estimated arrival for a short trip. Better than Uber, I suppose. Full Review

    I love using Lyft! Not going to lie, I always check Uber to see which one will be cheaper and 9 out of 10 times Lyft is the cheaper option, therefore I use Lyft mostly. Also this app isn't a space hog like Uber! Uber's app size is twice the size of Lyft and does the same thing #TeamLyft Full Review

    Can't see or change payment methods. I'm stuck with a card that doesn't work, can't use it. Edit: this issue is still not resolved, I cant see or edit my payment methods. In addition, there is something really wrong with the map. Not once has the destination been correct, and the driver keeps dropping me off miles away from where I intend to be. It's a good thing I knew this app was crappy and left to the airport with enough time to get lost. I'm deleting this app and never using it again. Full Review

    The pricing difference between lyft and other rideshare apps is astronomical. Lyft quoted me $36 to ride 15 minutes to work across town. Another app only quoted me $15 and it's just as popular, if not more popular, than Lyft. Not at all affordable for everyday use. I would only use this in an emergency. Full Review

    The more I use the app the more they charge me but will say on my phone 10 times cheaper. Cant depend on this everyday becasue the rates go up Becasue they assume you have money from using the lyft A lot . so the more you use it the more you spend . happens on a friends lyft too not just mine Full Review

    Justin Archie Published date: January 17, 2018

    They dont tell you that a scheduled ride can be cancelled at anytime and that theres nothing that you can do about it and in order to schedule a new ride, being it no fault of your own you wont be compensated for the difference and have to pay more money for a new rescheduled ride. Its unnerving if you really have to be somewhere important to use Lyft knowing that the scheduled ride can be cancelled at anytime and all they can do is send you a "sorry for the inconvenience" text message which doesn't resolve the issue Full Review

    I have taken the Lyft for two months now. I can recommend it VERY highly. All drivers are screened and background check. They sometimes have coupons for less off your ride. They are reliable, safe and very friendly. Lyft is what and who they say they are. So much better and cheaper than a cab. Full Review

    This is the first time I ever write a review because I didn't have a ride to work and so I scheduled a ride, and I was already nervous because I never have used Lyft or Uber and so I was a little nervous about safety, but in the end I was only worried about being late to work. I had 3 drivers switch on me and then the last one was 15 minutes away and it was already past 6:20 (I scheduled for 6:05-6:20) and by the time they would get to my house and bring me to work, I would undoubtedly be late .To top it off I got a message that my Lyft would be at my house at 5:45, that's 20 minutes earlier than what I had scheduled and so I rushed to get ready and couldn't even have breakfast, but when I waited outside there was no Lyft and then everything I wrote above happened. In the end , I cancelled and was freaking out about being on time. In the end I cancelled my scheduled lyft and requested a Lyft instead and ended up getting their just in time, thanks to Brian ! Who was very nice and welcoming, so thank you to Brian for making my first time using Lyft, great ! I suggest anyone using this Lyft to not use scheduled Lyft and instead stick with just requesting a Lyft as normal , it will save you time and is more for certain that they will arrive , ironically. The app needs more work and effort , but overall it's a good way to look for a ride and a nice concept. Full Review

    It's impossible to use Google Pay. If you select Main Menu > Payments > Pay with Google, then it tells you to select Google Pay during a new ride. If you try to change the payment method to Pay with Google during a new ride, then it tells you to update Pay with Google in the Main Menu. Full Review

    Terrible gps location accuracy and terrible directions given to drivers who obviously don't know the city they are working in. Lyft always seems to have major driver re-routing issues. Lyft costs more than Uber and is hardly cheaper than a cab and as noted above, you wait longer for your driver. Full Review
