How does it work? Watch this youtube video
Lyft, is a new ride sharing service and competitor to Uber (which I wrote about here).
UPDATE 9/24/14: Thanks to John for reporting that he and a friend signed up in New York City and got 3 Free Rides + 1 free ride in New York City. The 3 Free Rides expire 15 days after you sign up while the 1 free ride does not have an expiration date. Each free ride is up to $25. I'm trying to confirm when this ends but these promos usually last a couple of weeks. After that you will get 1 free ride up to $25. Pioneer City credit is only valid for rides within the New York City coverage area, up to $25 per ride. They did a similar promotion when they launched in 24 other markets.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?

- Download the mobile app (but do it when you are in NYC!)
- Sign up then click in the settings –> payment –> scroll to the bottom below your credit card info. You should see “3 free rides, up to $25 each” and under that you should see “1 free ride, up to $25”.

CAN I REFER A FRIEND?
Yes, you will get a referral link in your email after you sign up. Give it to your friends and they will get $25 credit towards your first ride. You will also get $25 credit. This link explains it.
WHERE IS IT AVAILABLE ?
It's official: Lyft is now live in all five boroughs of NYC!
IS IT SAFE ? HOW IS IT DIFFERENT ?
This chart explains how Lyft compares vs Taxi's, gypsy cabs/black cars and craigslist (though I would never bother with craigslist for a ride):
