If you want to install and use the Lyft app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use Lyft for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: Lyft for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Lyft in the search bar and press Search. Click on Lyft application icon. A window of Lyft on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the Lyft icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: Lyft for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use Lyft for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • $50 coupon: RIDE784

    By PrizeMe567
    First of all, if you haven't taken a ride yet make sure you use the coupon "RIDE784" to get $50 off your first rides!! Enter it right before you request a ride. Go to the Payments tab in the app and enter the coupon there. Might as well try it out since it probably won't cost you a thing!! The app is simple, easy to use and intuitive by design, giving you important info like the driver's face, phone number, and car make and model. It's amazing how quick and seamless the entire process is. A car comes to your door within minutes of pressing a button!!! The drivers are real people, they are very polite and their cars are clean! Some even come with complimentary water, gum and candy! Even if you want to charge your phone, a lot of drivers have phone chargers at your ready!! Lyft is definitely cheaper than your average cab. After all this, I don't see why you would ever use a yellow cab again. Even if you want to get a black car on the occasional night out, it's still cheaper and more convenient than hiring your own private driver. The customer support is also fantastic. I got overcharged on one of my trips and I didn't have to say anything more than a short comment on my driver feedback to get a full refund. I'm very happy and I hope Lyft continues to exceed my expectations in not only the app but customer service! I also prefer Lyft much more than other competitors, mainly because they have so much more supply and cars are always just a few minutes away!!!!
  • Lyfts Consideration to Getting Back to Customers on Issues

    By BurnMamaBurn
    I started using Lyft through my family. They referred me, and even though they never received referral fees, we still continue. At first rides would come as stated; example, if it said 2 minutes, they would come in 2 minute. Then as time went on, we start to find drivers stating a time, and some would come almost 10 minutes later. Imagine this, because remember that when you are waiting, the clocks ticks, and you must be there without delay, or its cancelled and you are charged. Ive had many drivers, and recent too, say they arrived, when they had not. Ive had drivers come with the cleanest cars, and lately with dirty exterior and interior. When riding the line, being patient, they will stop to get the other person, even though you are waiting, and then drop them first, landing me much later to my destination. Ive had drivers drive fast, almost going through lights, and looking at their phones while driving. Not acceptable. So, while many of this concerns may just be the way life is i guess, and mishaps i must be understanding to, and maybe I'm still even learning how this all works, my ability to reach Lyft immediately, or get a call back, or reply to my concerns, to me is a major concern, poor business, and pretty inconsiderate since I've been using the service consistently for months. Maybe a little consideration in trying to fix this please. Thanks so much.
  • Quick ride within minutes!!!!

    By Brendan McDonough
    I would highly recommend Lyft.. the drivers are so efficient and nice. Taking a lift is a lot more reliable then taking any other taxi each drive gets you as close to your destination as possible. Lyft drivers are always in the area the app is reliable and frequently updates to make sure it’s users are getting the best experience I will always recommend Lyft over a regular taxi. All drivers keep the cars clean and well organized, they also find the quickest routes around the city to get you to ur destination in a timely fashion. Just last week I took my first Lyft and I absolutely love it. Taking a Lyft is a lot cheaper and every car is eco friendly. Lyft prices are at a fixed rate at first glance and after you request the ride the price stays the same it does not change due to traffic or stopping to pick up other people. Lyft share allows you to share re ride balance with the other passengers sometimes Lyft will send you discounts or just apply them to your rides. Your very first Lyft is FREE !!! Lyft Inc app development team has created a very reliable app that as soon as something is noticed to be going wrong they fix it right away!! The team release a new update to the app as soon as they fix the problem I am very happy to be a Lyft customer.
  • Wasted time and money

    By ShanelleA26
    I've been riding Lyft everyday with the exception of one or two days of not riding, since last year. Most days I ride twice . I've seen so much of what's wrong with their service . Lyft drivers sometimes try to get a cancellation fee out of customers , they pick you up later than mentioned on the app( I do understand traffic etc but if it's over 30 mins at a time and place where there is little to no traffic , there's no excuse), I've been late to work so many times , no matter how early I schedule the ride , I've had drivers on the Lyft line not notice they have someone else on the line and had to turn back to go pick them up after almost reaching my destination, which once again , I'm late . Lyft has no loyalty to loyal customers either . I usually spend $10 each way per day, for about 5-6 days a week, since July 2017, and yet they don't even offer a frequent rider discount( Lyft can check my history to verify) . Not even 5% off your ride etc . Now I know I'm not the only one riding Lyft as much as I do , and I know there are people that spend more as well, but seriously , if Lyft notices there are customers that still stay with them , even after all the crap the service puts us through, don't they think they should offer something like that ?They also need to consider having a customer care line because the feedback link is not much help. Seriously deciding on deleting their app and spend my money on a service that cares about their customers.

  • awesome at first but now confusingwith voiceover as a blind person.

    By pantera2011
    for some reason in this update Lyft goes by milliseconds instead of how many minutes a driver is estemated from the current pickup location, for example the driver would be 5 minutes instead it says like 510000 micro seconds. please change this, and I will up the rating back to 5 stars☺️😟 Also can you please add a feature like disability mode or accessible mode in the app as well, an example, have it under the profile as an option to let drivers know that the passenger has a disability/blind/hard of hearing etc. it would be well appreciated. and less to explain to the driver via text or phone call,.
  • Problem with Lyft

    By dcohen123
    I scheduled a pickup to go to the airport 2 days prior to pick up time, 7am this morning. At 3 min to 7am, a received a text telling me my driver was 28 min away. I assumed that with the advance notice, Lyft would have found me a ride or let me know if not. I could have missed my flight. Would it be possible to notify people like me if no driver has been procured?

    By Klinecorkill0
    I needed a ride on a Saturday night around midnight and checked Lyft and Uber and Uber was almost twice as expensive. My ride was there in no time and had a very nice car and very enjoyable conversation.
  • Regular Rider

    By Appreciative Rider
    Generally Lyft is great! When wait times are extra long I appreciate being able to cancel without $5 penalty.
