Lyft has launched a new feature to their app with upfront pricing. Now Lyft passengers will be shown the price of the ride before requesting it. Uber currently offers upfront pricing, so Lyft has finally added the same feature. Previously, only Lyft Line rides only had upfront pricing.

If you are new to Lyft, you can sign-up here and depending on your city you can get between $5 to your first ride for free

How Upfront Pricing With Lyft Will Work:

No Math Required

  • The total you see includes fees, taxes, tolls, Prime Time, and any promotions that apply—so you never have to do the math.

Update Your Route Anytime

  • Plans change. If you change your stop or destination, the ride total you were quoted will no longer apply. Instead your total will be calculated based on the usual,  time and distance.

Adding a Destination is Optional

  • You may not always  want to add a destination. No problem, tap ‘Skip’ to request a ride directly. Your ride total will be calculated based on the usual time and distance.
  • This feature is available in select cities, and more passengers can look forward to upfront ride pricing in the coming months.

If you are new to Lyft, you can sign-up here and get a welcome offer based on your city!

  1. I’ve been seeing upfront pricing for a while, which makes sense, considering the Lyft blog post is 7 months old.
