I hadn't heard that about Lyft. I've had friends that have used Lyft, but it's always been Uber that has offered more discounts here. I could check with my friends who drive for both again, but, they were the ones who told me about the ability of the Uber drivers to get something worked out for their customers. It's great if Lyft is giving those kinds of discounts, though. I'd recommend using them if they're available and can help you save money.
