Share Button

We receive many questions everyday about the differences between Lyft, Lyft Line, and Lyft Plus. While it is understandable that the differences between the three can be confusing, they are, in fact, all very different from one another. Each of these three Lyft services has something unique to offer in a variety of different situations. Take a look at our Lyft Services Cheat Sheet below to learn which Lyft is best for you!

 

Lyft

The lowest cost service. This is on the same level as an UberX. A request for a Lyft will send to you a regular 4-seater car. Some of the vehicles you might ride in when using Lyft are Toyota Prius, Honda CRV, Ford Escape, Nissan Maxima, Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Ford Escort, Nissan Altima, Honda Civic, and Mazda 3

 

 

 

Lyft Line

A carpool type ridesharing service that pairs you with other passengers who are traveling along the same route. Lyft Line drivers are the same as regular Lyft drivers but Lyft Line prices are up to 60% cheaper since you are splitting the cost of the ride with several strangers. Lyft Line is currently only available in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Some of the vehicles you might ride in when using Lyft Line are Toyota Prius, Honda CRV, Ford Escape, Nissan Maxima, Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Ford Escort, Nissan Altima, Honda Civic, Mazda 3, Dodge Caravan, and Kia Sorrento.

 

 

Lyft Plus

The best option for larger groups wishing to travel together. A Lyft Plus car can seat 6 or more passengers. The fare prices are slightly more expensive than a regular Lyft to compensate van and SUV drivers for higher vehicle running costs. Some of the vehicles you might ride in when using Lyft Plus are Dodge Caravan, Kia Sorrento, Toyota Highlander.
