Lyft's mobile app connects passengers who need a ride to drivers who have a car. Users can request rides at any time by tapping a button. The app auto-locates the user and lets them track the driver's route and ETA.

Passenger payment to drivers is processed entirely through the app. Drivers range from florists and firefighters to engineers.
