It’s hard to believe that less than a decade ago, car-hailing apps weren’t even a thing. (Remember what a nightmare it was trying to get a cab in the rain?) But in that time, we’ve become more than a little dependent on our trusty Lyft account to get us around when other forms of transportation (*cough,* MTA) aren’t cutting it.
That said, we were stunned to learn that there’s a whole slew of features we haven’t been using. And they’re about to make your life—the getting-around part of your life, anyway—so much easier.
Schedule a pickup in advance. Got a 6 a.m. flight out of JFK? Now you can order a car up to a week ahead of time (because those extra minutes of sleep are precious).
Earn airline points. If you’re a frequent Delta flyer, you can link your Skymiles to your Lyft account and earn points on every ride—and triple points on airport rides. That’s kinda major.
