$10 for $20 Worth of On-Demand Ride Services
Customers use the free Lyft app on their smartphones to instantly request a ride anywhere around town—at recommended rates that are always lower than regular cab fare. Rates depend on location; for example, a ride from Fenway to Harvard Square typically costs around $13, a ride from Kendall to Brookline typically costs around $12, and a ride from Downtown to Kenmore Square typically costs around $8.
Lyft is your friend with a car. Passengers can log into the app on their smartphone, request a ride with tap of a button, see a picture of their car and driver, and be on their way within minutes. Besides making rides convenient with cashless payments, Lyft rides also make for an economically sound choice—typically, Lyft is more affordable than traditional taxis. The company has received an array of press accolades—including features by USA Today, Forbes, and the New York Times. They have also been featured in a Conan sketch.
