What is Lyft?
Lyft is an app that lets you get a ride from your phone. All you have to do is open the app, enter your destination, and request a ride. A driver will then be dispatched to your location to pick you up and take you to where you’re going.
How it works
With the Lyft app request a ride. When a nearby driver accepts your request, the app will display an estimated time of arrival for the driver heading to your pickup location. The app will also notify you when your driver is about to arrive.
Also, when a driver accepts your request the app will provide you with all their information. Like the drivers first name., vehicle type, and license plate number. This information will help you find your driver when they arrive at your pickup location.
Once, your trip is complete the fare will be automatically calculated and charged to your payment method you've linked to your account.
You will also be able to rate your driver one to five stars, and leave them a tip. Note drivers also rate riders to. If you should rate your driver or rider three stars or lower you will never be paired with them again.
