5. OMG.

 

I think that's working. I need a ride this evening at 8:30 eastern to the airport. Trying to figure out how to schedule a pickup for then.

6. Google is a great tool

You can request a Lyft using any browser with the exception of Shared and Lux services. Standard Lyft services are fine. The process is very similar to the app but you will manually have to verify your phone number and pay through the browser.

If you already have a Lyft account associated with your phone number, you will be logged in after entering it. If you donít have an account linked to that number, you will need to enter an SMS code to verify it.

Visit http://ride.lyft.com in your browser.
Enter your phone number in the box and wait for the SMS code.
Enter the code into the box on the website.
Request a pickup, set a destination and payment method.

7. Thank you very much.

 

I spent two hours trying to figure out Lyft w/out a smartphone. Couldn't get to 1st base on Uber. Finally called a cab. Just cancelled the cab.

8. Oh, wait.

 

I called two shuttle services and each required 24 hours notice. Then I called the cab.

4. You can't

It's one of the complaints against Uber/Lyft replacing taxi services. They don't take cash either, which is another one.

on edit:

Looks like I was wrong. The website above can work without a smart phone.
