Introducing Lyft, A Brand New Ridesharing App! PLUS, GET YOUR FIRST RIDE FREE!!!!
Okay, I am going to be the first one to say, life looks much cooler living in a big town. I mean, we are about 30 miles from Lexington, Kentucky, and that is considered the "big city" to us country folk. You city people get all the cool stuff! One new and awesome thing that yall "city slickers" are gonna get to enjoy is Lyft, a brand new ride sharing app!
I have to say, this app and ridesharing service looks pretty dang awesome. After you download the app, all you have to do is tap the green button to request a ride. Then, you are automatically paired up with a driver who has already been background-checked) within just a few minutes. You can watch your driver approach via the app, and see them in real time! You also get to see a picture of the car and the driver so you can know exactly who to expect. But, you're not really going to need that, because Lyft drivers have big, furry, hot pink mustaches on their cars! Yes, I am serious! Plus, Lyft is like getting a ride from a friend. You sit up front, you greet your driver with a fist bump, and by the time you get to your destination, you've made a friend!
You don't even have to carry cash when you use Lyft! The app automatically charges your credit card, so no worries! Another really great thing about Lyft is that drivers and riders get to rate each other after the ride is over. If you rate someone below 3 stars, you will never be paired up with them again. That's pretty cool, and a great way to make sure that you don't have to keep riding with someone you just don't click with! Lyft also has a big emphasis on safety. All drivers have to be 21 or older, have no DUI's on their record, and no major violations in the past three years. All cars must be year 2000 or newer, and have to undergo an inspection. As for the drivers, they have to undergo a background check that does not allow felonies, drug offenses, violent crimes, sexual offenses or theft. Lyft also has a zero tolerance drug and alcohol policy.
I love this whole idea and concept! I can't wait until I live somewhere a little closer to... well, other people, so I can try this app out! But.. for all of you lovelies that would like to try the app out, guess what? You can get $25 Lyft credit when you use the promo code found on this page. That is getting your whole first ride for free!!! How great is that? Try it out, and let me know how you like it!!
