Q:

there isn't much info on your website. What is this exactly? Someone with a car "volunteers" to play taxi? So there has to be someone out there willing to drive where I'm going when I'm going? Like if I needed a ride at 4am there has to be someone in my area willing to drive me where I need to go at that time? How does this work exactly?

A:

I suggest checking out the Help section of the Lyft website by clicking here to learn more about their ride services. Hours of operation can be found here.

A:

Yes, I eventually found the FAQ section, which addresses the time questions, but what about the other part of my question? If I sign up, am I at the mercy of luck and chance that someone will be available in the area at the time I need them and is willing to go where I need to go essentially? If I need a "Real" taxi I can just call one. With this service there is no guarantee that I will get a ride?

A:

Rides are subject to availability. Regarding what to do when there's not a Lyft available, here is what the FAQ states: "Lyft is in high demand and drivers are frequently completing rides, so the best thing to do is keep the app open and look for available drivers to appear near you. We're working hard to grow the driver community to make getting a Lyft easier and easier."

Q:

Is the price for one person only, or for the ride - which could include up to 4 people, according to an earlier answer -? If the price is per person, would a person ever have to share the ride with someone they don't know like airport shuttles typically do? Also, are rides available 24 hours a day or if not, then what hours are rides available?

Pamela C.  asked on  Jun 18, 2013

A:

The suggested donation rates are per ride, not per person. Most of their drivers' vehicles fit up to 4 passengers, but you can always check with your driver in advance. You would not have to share a ride with strangers.

Q:

We have a group of seven. Can you accomodate and how much?

Gayle B.  asked on  Jun 17, 2013

A:

To update my previous answer, most of their cars fit no more than 4 passengers. Any more than that, and you'll want to call the driver to make sure they can fit that large of a group. Thanks!
