NYC needs Lyft

SAFE, AFFORDABLE RIDES IN NYC

Did you know that 95% of taxi pickups are in Manhattan and at airports? Watch the video below to find out how ridesharing can fix these transportation inequalities and why NYC needs Lyft.


How does it work?

Lyft matches drivers with passengers who request rides through our app for iPhone or Android. Our promise: community, affordability, safety, and convenience.

Affordable


Never worry about carrying cash again — the app automatically charges payment from your saved credit card. Best of all, Lyft is less than a cab by 20-30%.

Safe


From driver background checks to our first-of-its-kind $1M liability insurance, we go the extra mile to create a safer community.

Friendly


We’re your friend with a car, so hop into the front seat. Your driver will welcome you with a friendly fistbump, let you play car DJ, and even lend a phone charge if you need one. At Lyft, we’re here for each other.
