Once you're registered with Lyft, you can see the exact positions of all the vehicles that can pick you up at any time. You can see who the driver is and the type of car the person drives. All it takes is one tap to request a ride.
When it comes to making a payment, Lyft is super convenient. Not only can you pay directly with the app, you can even split the cost with your friends if you're riding together. This way you can avoid the awkward moment when it comes to paying, and one person in the group doesn't get stuck paying for the whole ride.
Lyft is a really interesting app that offers a real alternative to the classic taxis.
Requires Android 4.0.3 or higher
