How does it work? Watch this youtube video
Lyft, is a new ride sharing service and competitor to Uber (which I wrote about here).
New customers GET 5 FREE RIDES in NEW YORK CITY / BROOKLYN. Rides only valid for rides within the New York City / Brooklyn coverage area, up to $25 per ride. They did a similar promotion when they launched in 24 other markets which I wrote about here. I use Lyft a couple times a week now and love it — especially on weekends when the trains don't run as often.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
- Click here to sign up for
5 FREE RIDESto use in 15 days (new customers only now only get 1 free ride up to $25)
- Download the mobile app (do it when you are in New York City / Brooklyn to make sure this promotion works!)
- Sign up then click in the settings –> payment –> scroll to the bottom below your credit card info. You should see
“5 free rides, up to $25 each”. If the credits don't show up in the app on their own, go to the Payment screen and enter the code CENTRALPARK before requesting your first Lyft!
If your credits don't show up, enter the code CENTRALPARK here:
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.

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).
