I have had it with Lyft!
Hello to all enterprising class action lawyers!
Here is a definite class action lawsuit against Lyft, and I will gleefully and happily be your first and lead plaintiff: Lyft is ripping consumers off plain and simply by their fraudulent pick-up times for specific prices.
It is known as a bait-and-switch fraud.
Lyft’s ap says, for example, you will be picked up in 6 minutes if you choose to pay $31.71.
Yesterday, I would pick a time of 6 or 8 minutes to be picked up, and then wait in a blazer and starched shirt in 92-degree temperature as Lyft’s ap would be stuck at 6 or 7 minutes for more than ten minutes.
So I would wait 10 minutes, then have the car stuck at 6 minutes (after 10 minutes) then, I’d call the driver and ask where they were, or I would just cancel the trip. Whenever I called the driver they were much farther away than what the ap told me was the driver’s location. Yet another deception.
Then, I’d order another Lyft.
Three times I ordered a Lyft and three times the same thing happened, the car was stuck at 7 or 6 minutes for about 10 minutes.
I finally took an Uber, which told me to the minute (accurately) how far away was the car, and accurately told me when it would arrive. So I made my dinner but I was delayed 45 minutes.
In short, Lyft baits you with this offer, for x price, we will pick you up in y minutes.
The switch is you pay the x price, and wait for y plus 10 or 15 minutes.
They ought to be sued.
They are deceiving customers and ripping them off.
