A ride on Lyft Line is always cheaper than the same an original Lyft ride. Discount amounts depend on your city, the likelihood for getting matched, and current driver supply. Your app will display the price up front: what you see is what you pay regardless of whether or not you're matched.
Passengers in cities with Lyft Line can estimate the cost of a particular trip by using the estimator built into Lyft Line mode.
- Open the app and toggle the top bar over to 'Line.' You'll only see this option in a Line-enabled coverage area (Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Newark, New Jersey, New York City, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.).
- Enter your pickup and drop-off locations (type the address or move the pin).
You'll see a guaranteed price for your Lyft Line, as well as an estimated price for a standard Lyft in strikethrough text.
If you request a Lyft Line ride, you will be charged the guaranteed amount, shown in bold. You may also leave the Lyft Line request screen by pressing the close button and request a standard Lyft. Please keep in mind that fares in a standard Lyft may vary due to traffic, weather, and other factors.
