Due to the fact that Uber and Lyft quite often cost less than a traditional cab service more and more people are choosing to use their services. Both Uber and Lyft require a user to download an app on their smart phone, once the app is downloaded, the user can order a private vehicle driven by a non professional driver to take them to their destination.
