Destination Filter -- LIMITED to 6 (fix please)

Electric Vehicles need to plan routes to electric chargers. Please, don't limit the Destination Filter. 🚘⚡️⛽️ With limited EV range, and shortage of charging stations, this feature keeps me online AND accepting rides with Lyft. I use this feature frequently throughout the day while doing errands. Why limit it to 6? The limitation come as a surprise -as it doesn't specify how many are left. Also, the filter quits too early. On long rides, the filter logs me out after a short distance (20 minutes?) ALSO: SCHEDULED RIDES - are not visible while on Destination Mode. I can't view, accept, nor cancel any future rides. (I frequently stop to charge my vehicle with destination mode on. —Opportunities for future rides are missed) A few times now, while en route to scheduled rides, the ride disappears without an explanation. No explanation if Rider cancelled (cancellation fee should apply) or if Lyft gave it to another rider, arbitrarily.

$800 surprise -"ZOOM900" 🚕

First of all welcome to Lyft and get amazing experience. I got refer by friend and get $800 bucks 💵. You are new driver then use this - "ZOOM900". Lyft is new to my town and I liked very much, app is also convenient and getting lots of businesses from riders. Everyone is talking about lyft and want to use share drive rather than own car and pay insurance and gas on it. Getting rides from Hotel , school , hospital , pubs and churches and everywhere. My suggestion would be for new driver to don't reject ride request and go for everywhere. This will increase your rating and give more rides. Riders are not aware of possible difficulties at pickup places. Such as bus stop or corner of shop or intersection can not be fulfill because of traffic violation. It's great advice riders to request ride towards empty parking spots , curb or driveway. In big city and busiest road you might want to pinpoint preferred pick up point instead of middle of road and suggest good pick up location to rider like hotel parking , parking zones or pickup shoulders. In map mark no pickup zones so rider knew that there is not way to picked up from that spot. More smart way to ask rider to walk for few minutes to save lots of time by not picked up on rush hour road and get ride from empty place. many places it's possibility of citation because of no parking zone. I don't care about user rating and always stop at legal stopping places. Pick hours grid doesn't display well sometimes. I prefer to see my earnings and not the overall rides cost because my earnings help us to reach our daily goal. I use waze app lots and best case is that waze in-build app in lyft .

iPhone 5 issues

IOS 11 is only available for iPhones 6 and up. The new version of Lyft is not working on my 5. Update: ok the app works now with the latest fix for iPhone 5's. Thank you.

Hard to use

I am pretty tech savvy and just recently started driving lyft. The sign up process was easy but unfortunate this app is not. Most the riders don’t have a picture and I wish it was clearer to see where they are needing to be picked up at. It switches over to the gps app and they never make it clear what the destination actually is. It would be nice if they could tell you whether it’s a residence or business too so you know what you are looking for. I also wish you could see where the destination is after you confirm that you have picked them up. Again, it switches back to the gps app and you are just driving blindly. And it would be nice if it made a sound when you were getting a ride request. Sometimes I miss them because I didn’t look down at my phone for a few seconds. My car is eligible for premier service and I wish I could switch back and forth from premier service a little easier in the app.

Lyft Driver Bonus!

Use code " HEYLYFT123 " to win up to 800$ bonus while earning on every ride!

Is it worth to be counted on?

I am barely going to begin driving as a "lyft driver" but am unsure due to all the glitches and bad reviews on the application so if I'm going to be giving time and effort will the payments at least go through?

Bad interface with maps

App doesn't communicate address to Waze which forces driver to dangerously switch to driver ap while car is moving to confirm address. Has multiple times selected pickup rider by itself, even when was going to be a no show. Why did they need 2 apps?

Idioma

Sería mucho mas útil y ayudaría más si tuviera idioma en español. Deseo mi comentario sea util para todos . Gracias...

$800 cash 💰 - LYFTD500

Works fine with Iphone 6 and Iphone 7. Mostly getting customer immediately as might be lucky to get busy spot. Get upto $800 credit as driver if apply - "LYFTD500" when you register with Lyft. Easy registration process and very quick driver registration .Awesome experience with Lyft. Here is some improvements they can do it in future apps : 1) Need CarPlay support and I like Apple map + apple watch rather then google map or waze, 2) Sometime getting request from customer 15-25 mins away. 3) Does not pair with nearest Driver(A rider want to ride with me after few minutes and apps always pair with another driver 15 mins away , we tried multiple times) 4) Display number of miles/km drive on one session which will help for gas intake. 4) Need support for cash payment as supported by Uber in some country.5) Rarely map hang during peak times and does not show real time location.7) Battery life is very low without charging so need some improvements. Ios 11 is amazing update. All are looks new phone and i loved new control center and notifications. !!

Newest update and now I can't connect

I love driving for lyft and typically love their app but this latest update has left me unable to connect to the driver app. Regular app I can get into but this one will not load. This is my only source of income right now so on a Friday night this is s major blow to my income. I have reached out to lyft and was told they are aware of the issue and are working to fixit. I hope it happens soon. It's been almost 5 hours now that I've been trying to open the app Update: I reached out on Facebook to Lyft and was told that developers were working on a fix and hoped to have it fixed in a few hours. The next morning I was still unable to sign on and reached back out to Lyft and was given the same answer - developers are hoping to have a fix soon. In talking with another driver he asked if I had iPhone 5. I did. He advised that this was where the problem was happening was on iPhone 5’s. I was able to upgrade my phone and now the app is working perfectly. I wish that this had been communicated to me from the person I was in contact with at Lyft as I would have upgraded the same day and not lost out on a whole day of work. But, still a great company to work for just could have had better communication like an email sent out to drivers when they became aware of the issue.

Application issues

Edit1: ok Lyft, I’ll play along. Here is my ticket number: 51236186 Couldn’t tell you how good the app is. I haven’t made it past the application process...but as for Lyft itself, TERRIBLE customer service. I was dealing with Kimverly during my application and at first she was helpful. Then after about 4 emails she just stopped responding. Every attempt I have made after goes unanswered. When I call the “customer help” number, it tells me to use the website then hangs up. As for the site, if you are applying, you can not make any changes to your profile so better hope all your documents are right the first time or you will get stuck in limbo for 3 weeks like I did. I will be sticking with Uber now...

Still no CarPlay or Apple Maps Support 😤

The app loads faster, however, there are serious design and functionality issues: *No CarPlay support. *Apple Maps support removed. *"What's New" app updates are mostly boilerplate *No CarPlay support This is a critical issue as my car screen is far safer to monitor than my iPhone screen. *Apple Maps support removed. What would you force people to install Google Maps or Waze to go online, when Apple Maps will work just fine, especially if you have CarPlay and an Apple Watch ⌚️? I can't use either because Apple Maps is blocked. *"What's New" app updates uses boiler plate copy/paste language, instead of more useful details that other apps manage to include. Having a pop-up updates whenever one goes offline is the wrong solution for this and it's annoying and counterproductive.

No sound

You have to stare at the app to make sure you don't miss any request. Their app developers need more training.

No love for the driver app

Glitchy! Please fix glitches with flickering earnings box & app crashes. Fix Lyft line so drivers don’t have to go backwards to pick someone up. Stop the virtue signaling and social justice politics. I like how Lyft is better to drivers and I like the higher pay! Still better then UBER but Lyft line routes blow!

Error de aplicación

Esta actualización me ha impedido abrir la aplicación en mi iPhone 5C. Verifiquen por favor y corrijan el error.

App not loading

I downloaded the App but it's not opening. Tried several times but no result. I was using it before this problem started. Please what is happening?

Waste of time

This review is just for the scheduled pickup feature as a driver. I'm getting ready for my scheduled pickup and Lyft tells me to go online at 8am. I did and I didn't get the scheduled ride request. Happened 3 times already. Complete waste of my time and the customer's. 1 less Lyft driver on the road

Horrible app

The app runs like it’s in beta testing. Keeps turning off, not running smoothly. Lyft need to fire they app developers.

App Crash money Lost

The latest update does not work on iPhone 5, 5c, or 5s. It freezes on the launch screen and says "Still loading" at the bottom. Support was contacted, response is that their engineering team is working on it. In the meantime, I am not able to drive, a huge loss financially. I don't know how I will pay for the rental. Hopefully Lyft will compensate me.

Very glitchy especially with payments

I already had several issues where the app was supposed pay a power zone bonus, but when I completed the ride it just didn’t. Customer service is horrible, very hard to even submit a payment issue and when I did, the answer was that I was not in a power zone when I picked the passenger up right in the middle of it. On a different instance, a passenger canceled a ride about 10 minutes into me going their way to pick them up, but instead of getting a cancelation fee, this app simply didn’t even display this trip in my trip history. Very shady business practices indeed. Lyft also seems to think it’s ok to harass drivers about canceling rides, but doesn’t take the effort to apply traffic data into their platform to calculate the time it’s actually takes to pick a passenger up. When a request comes in, it says 5 minutes away, but when you find out the address and take traffic into consideration, it often is 10-15 minutes or more to pick that passenger up. That’s bad for the driver and the rider, but if you cancel, Lyft harassed you and I even got deactivated, before complaining and getting deactivated. Basically the company is growing, but can’t seem to handle the volume of business and is completely failing in app development and customer service. Recent payment theft practice however is inexcusable.

Huge Headache

The Driver App has given me headaches since it launched. It goes for hours and now days at a time inoperable, causing me to lose potential earnings. None of the suggested fixes helps. This is a rotten app. 😡

doesnt run

the new version doesnt run

1001.22.3

I haven't been able to open the app since the new update. All I'm getting is the Lyft screen and "Still loading" displayed at the bottom. Help!!! I'm trynna get to this BAGG!!

IOS 11 isn’t supporting Lyfts latest update

It keep on saying I need to update my app when I go to verify my telephone number fixx thank you

Buggy!!!

Costed me more than a days worth of pay because the app was bugged. Missed several scheduled pick ups. This is a joke.

Can be a TON better

As a driver this app does most of the basics - lets you see driving history, contact Lyft robots...I mean email service, see what areas are surging (not the specific location(s) however), see your earnings + the details of you earnings and other basics. *Currently the app is crashing & lagging really bad especially switching tabs. The things that can improve are 1) The current crash & lag since the update of iOS11, 2) Being able to confirm you’ve picked up a rider (you have to do it once you’ve arrived but it doesn’t let you when get there; my finger hits the “pick up” button on accident either when it lags and I’m making sure I hit arrived then it switches to pick up then proceeds when there’s no rider in the car or just me switching apps and mistakenly hitting “pick up”. 3) Stopping a rider from requesting then immediately cancelling the ride right after more than 03 times within two minutes. It’s annoying when the same rider keeps requesting a ride but constantly cancels immediately after. It stops the driver flow (can lead to a driver cutting off the app for a few minutes missing out on other riders who really need a ride amongst other things). Some limitation should be set. 4) Add the ability for drivers to set rather the will do rides over 30 minutes, 45 minutes or 60 minutes. Some riders have places to get to that may be out of the normal time frame but some drivers may cancel when the ride is too far for them which is understandable depending on the circumstances. 5) Adding quick notes to things like rating the rider. Riders can quickly tap on things such as “clean car” “friendliness” etc but not the driver there should be things like “was it actually the rider who requested” (nothing wrong with it being for someone else depending the circumstances) “followed car rules” etc. This makes it simple for added safety and Lyft expectations for Lyft riders. Quick notes should be added to drivers profile (for riders view as well upon request of a rideshare) of how many rides a driver has done and the top 01 or 02 pros of the driver (ex: 500 rides, clean car, great navigation). 6) The ability to toggle between male or female riders. This feature I’m thinking of as exclusively for females because in some hours of the day, certain areas or events female drivers are uncomfortable with male riders especially when there’s a group of them. Yes you have the riders info (minus the fake names & no picture) I feel having this will be an added safety feature that can eliminate something going wrong and possibly add more drivers. 7) Have the rider take a picture and have their name but give them the option to not show it to the rider. The rider can give a nickname but at least a real name and picture (possibly) will be on file with Lyft if anything happens. It’s kinda hard to say “he’s not my daddy” was the last rider that left their belongings in your car or other events.

I’m using uber over lyft simply because

The app I much smoother and helps you a lot more lyft is great and offers a lot but the app is choppy they need a major update firs they should have weekely promotions just like uber and a meter that tracks the promotions and they should instead of telling us the hot spots put the individual person who’s requesting the ride on the map that way we’re not wasting or time waiting for a passenger where there is none

Thanks

Just noticed after an hour of testing the App that it seems to be functioning much better from the previous versions. I really hope the driver app issues smooth out. I have faith in you Lyft team.

Driver support

Very bad driver support when I'm driving everyday have a one problem i request them for fix they never back email vary bad

Thank u

❤️

Just

Is the good opportunity. Thanks Lyft!!!

Trying to use with IPad

Awful experience. Will only show part of screen and three rows of keys on the keyboard. They have been in business long enough to have perfected this app for iPad. Uber’s app works perfect on iPad. Guess who I will be driving for.

Crap app

Doesn't work I should probably work for the other ride share company

$400 bonus Matt18041

Great app works fine

Annoying layout

The reason I stopped driving for Lyft is because for one it will Never be as busy as uber. Anytime I have them both on I always receive an uber request first so why even use Lyft? Second one my main reason is the awful layout of the app. Why is there no in app navigation? That makes no sense to me. While it isn't that big of a deal to go to a different app for navigation why would I do that when uber makes it so much easier with in app navigation. Come on Lyft that's honestly a no brainer. Another thing is the steps required when you pick someone up first you have to confirm arrival then confirm pick up then go to a separate navigation and that has to load then you have to press go on the navigation. It's ridiculous! All you have to do with uber is press start trip and boom you're golden. There are a few things I enjoy about Lyft like the hourly rates and the scheduled pick ups. But I think the app needs fixing.

Paying lyft to work for them

The reason I stopped working “for” lyft is due t me spending more on gas than what I actually made. I would make good money but lyft would take away almost 80-90% every time. It was ridiculous! DO NOT recommend this at all! Save your gas, save your wear and tear, save your time!!

Suggested improvements

As a driver the iPhone app is great. I have missed a request or two, three because I didn't see the screen change; the pop-up is white on white background and doesn't catch the eye when it changes. I don't have my phone up on the windshield because the white screen interferes with night vision. Perhaps the request pop-up could be hot pink and flash to catch the eye. Speaking of driving at night, how about a dark theme, so the app doesn't interfere with night vision. Lastly, I wish I could run the app on my iPad Pro (9.7"). I prefer a larger screen so the text, i.e. street names and other information, is easier to read. Landscape mode would be nice too. Information that is easier to read reduces eye strain and the reduces the length of time looking at the screen thereby improving safety. Thanks for listening. Jay

Apple Maps

Give us back the option to use Apple Maps!!

Fake ratings 👎

Really bad service 👎👎👎 This team enjoying by providing fake ratings to the innocent drivers 😇

I feel sad

I am referred by my friend and i am used him code number and after i am finished my app and I am asked the customer support to get the money for me and my friend they told me sorry we changed you to the bonus program and we can't change to the refer grogram I don't want the bonus program and I hate work with lyft

Destination mode bumped to 6x per day... Better :-)

Thanks for making destination mode twice as flexible. At 6 a day, might as well just go unlimited? Great job moving the Last Ride button, but that doesn't solve the problem of an unwanted match. Maybe work on seamlessly switching drivers at the beginning of the ride, to allow drivers to decline an add-on ride?

$800 easy money 💰

🏎🛵🚨Use this code "LYFTD1K". Great they came out with a different app. Best idea to do so. It's good that it's still connected with older app which is rider app now. Riders are not aware of possible difficulties at pickup places. Such as bus stop or corner of shop or intersection can not be fulfill because of traffic violation. It's great advice riders to request ride towards empty parking spots , curb or driveway. In big city and busiest road you might want to pinpoint preferred pick up point instead of middle of road and suggest good pick up location to rider like hotel parking , parking zones or pickup shoulders. In map mark no pickup zones so rider knew that there is not way to picked up from that spot. More smart way to ask rider to walk for few minutes to save lots of time by not picked up on rush hour road and get ride from empty place. many places it's possibility of citation because of no parking zone. I don't care about user rating and always stop at legal stopping places. Pick hours grid doesn't display well sometimes. I prefer to see my earnings and not the overall rides cost because my earnings help us to reach our daily goal. I use waze app lots and best case is that waze in-build app in lyft. iOS 11 is amazing update, I loved control center and other features.

No Ride Requests Received Since Update

I have not received a single ride request since the update over the weekend. I've had 3 hours of time online driving all over the city. I even picked up a scheduled pick up and was online 25 minutes prior and didn't get it.

Lost contact

I keep getting logged out from Lyft while im waiting for a passenger. App is updated. Im loosing money!!!

Good, but could be better

This app needs improvements when passenger changes occur. I also believe the Lyft map should be equal to that of google maps in regards to giving the option to choose the map compass (meaning either pointing to the NORTH OR have the vehicle points towards its own direction. Hope this makes sense. Please add that feature or contact me directly !

The Worse App Ever!!!!!!

I can't even log in

I recently decided to go back to driving for my local ride share companies. I downloaded the Lyft app multiple times.. after ever download I immediately get "something went wrong try again later" and I can't get past that screen to even log in.

Difficult all night

The app would not load for anything and kept freezing.
