If you didn’t know, now you know: Uber sucks. And they’ve sucked for a while. .
Getaround is basically an Airbnb for car owners. Unlike Lyft or Uber, where the owners actually chauffeur you around, Getaround is a person-to-person carsharing service that allows owners to make their personal cars available to rent.
Lyft brands itself as your friendly neighborhood ride-sharing service and it’s grown significantly in Detroit. Launched as a mobile app in the summer of 2012 as a service of Zimride, it has grown exponentially ever since.
There have been some exciting innovations to the personal transportation industry in the last decade. One of those innovations is the advent of rideshare companies such like Uber and Lyft. In this post, we’ll focus specically on Lyft (because I dislike Uber).
For more than two years, Lyft and Uber have been able to drop off, but not pick up from LAX. That’s until tomorrow when travelers will be able to request a Lyft from Los Angeles International airport (LAX) legally.
If you follow this site (wow, your life) then you know that I am a big proponent of Lyft and especially when compared to Uber. Specifically, when I do use Lyft, I use their “Line” service because it’s economically sensible.
I’ve taken Lyft to San Francisco International (SFO) a handful of times and though it’s not the cheapest way to get to the airport, it’s cost-effective for the great conveniences it provides.
As quickly as $8 Lyft Lines replaced $5 Lyft Lines, they’re ending the more expensive promotion after just a couple weeks.
Those of you that read this site know that I prefer Lyft over Uber and specifically, the Lyft Line service is an efficient and reasonable transportation option.
Lyft has been threatening to end their $5 Lyft Line promotion for a few months now and they’ve finally pulled the plug on the five buck fares in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
From the $5 hotspots to 10-minute match, it’s no secret that I much prefer Lyft Line over regular Lyft, and certainly over Uber.
Would you rather have a car pick you up from your home and zip you directly to your destination or take the subway? Usually the subway is cheaper than a private car, but with Lyft Line, the price difference isn’t much.
With “HotSpots”, Lyft continues to find ways to make their car sharing service less-expensive and more accessible.
In the continued battle between Lyft and Uber, both ride-sharing companies are trying to one-up one another with features, promotions and benefits.
Back in October 2014, I talked about how Line was a great way to cut your Lyft fares by half.
If you’re not in a rush and looking for an easy way to save 30-50% on your next Lyft, considering trying out Lyft’s new “Line” service.
In the battle between ride sharing services, on which side do you land on?
Lyft was my service of choice in San Francisco, so I was happy to read that we’ll be finally seeing Lyft cars in New York, specifically starting out in Brooklyn and Queens (though not without the expected barriers from the taxi commission).
