Today, I want to introduce you to the awesome little ride-sharing app Lyft (and tell you how to get $20 worth of rides for free!). Lyft is like having a friend with a car whenever you need one. Unlike a cab, you can hop right in the front seat and make friends with your driver. Did I mention it’s cheaper, too?
So, how does it work?
Once you open the app, Lyft will find your location and show you the nearest available drivers. Click 'Request Lyft' and you'll see a picture of your friendly driver and their car. Then, just wait a few minutes for them to arrive - you'll recognize your Lyft by the pink mustache adorning the front of the car! At the end of your ride, say a friendly goodbye to your driver and pay directly through the app after leaving the car - simple, easy, and no cash involved!
You can download the Lyft app for iOS here and/or Android here and use my code SILBERMAN on the payment menu for $20 credit!
Lyft is all about creating an affordable, social, and sustainable transportation community. Check out the video below to find out more about the awesome community they’re building right here in LA!
