Although the Windows ecosystem is seeing a massive exodus of mobile applications, quite a few apps are still making their way to the platform. The latest to arrive on Windows 10 PCs and mobile devices is Lyft, a popular ride-sharing service. Microsoft’s Paul Britton first revealed the launch of the app, which now means you can now look for a nearby vehicle, request a ride, and pay for the ride on your device.

Key features

Here is the app’s description on the Windows Store:

Need a lift? Use Lyft to get an affordable ride in minutes. Instead of hailing a cab or waiting for the bus, just request a car with the tap of a button, and get picked up by a nearby friendly driver who’ll take you to your destination right away. Enjoy a welcoming, affordable, and memorable ride today. Our app is cheaper than a taxi, faster than the bus, and easy to use. And now you can use your Windows mobile phone or tablet to request your Lyft rides.

  • Getting Started: After downloading Lyft and signing up, simply open the app and request a ride.
  • Paying: Never worry about having cash for a cab or the bus again — with Lyft, you pay through your phone. It’s easy, fast, and secure.
  • Split the Cost: Easily split the cost of a ride with friends through the app. No more IOU’s.

The expansion of Lyft to Windows Store means Uber now has one more competitor in the ride-sharing niche on this platform. Lyft is available to download now as a UWP app.
