Through a friend in California, I just became aware of Lyft, a recent arrival in the Boston market competing with Uber.
A few weeks ago, I found myself in Chelsea far from my destination, and no convenient T connection. So I opened up my Lyft app on my iPhone and within 5 minutes, a Lyft driver pulled up to the address where I was waiting. Because this was my initial ride, it was free and the tip was also taken care of by Lyft. The following week, the T was running slowly, and I needed to get to a scheduled meeting, so I used Lyft again. Same story, A car arrived within 5 minutes, and the ride, including tip, was billed to the credit card number I had pre-loaded onto the app. Price was $5.00!
Now that I have tried it out and am convinced that Lyft is a great deal, I am pleased to invite you to try it - FOR FREE. Here is what to do:
- Step 1 - Download the Lyft app for Android or iPhone
- Step 2 - Enter the code "WHITERHINO" into the Payment section
- Step 3 - Request a Lyft
