How to get a safe ride home with Lyft

Once you have registered your account and set your payment method you are ready to order your first ride. When you open the app you can select ‘Line’ and enter your destination. Within several minutes the Lyft will match you with a closest available driver.
The price of your ride will be calculated up-front and you will be able to track the driver’s estimated time of arrival in the app. The app will also display a photo of the driver so you can know who will pick you up. Once the driver is at your place, you will get the text. When you get to your home safely you can simply pay the ride with your phone.
If you are concerned about safety, keep in mind that Lyft performs background and DMV record checks. A driver’s car is also checked and company makes sure that the model is year 2000 or newer. Every passenger will rate a driver, and vice versa. If a driver has less than four stars, he/she will never be matched with some passengers again.
