Anyone who has ever needed a ride, especially in the past couple of years, has probably taken advantage of one of the rideshare platforms to get from Point A to Point B and maybe even Point C. The two most popular rideshare platforms are Uber and Lyft. In order to use these platforms, you are required to add a credit card to use the service. But what if you want to remove your credit card and replace it? How would you delete a credit card from Lyft? Well, here is a quick guide on how to delete a credit card from Lyft.

Delete a Credit Card from Lyft

What is Lyft?

Lyft is a more casual alternative to Uber. Lyft drivers are known to be a bit more engaging and talkative than Uber drivers. Lyft has some luxury vehicles in their fleet, for customers to catch a ride, but if you are looking for a rideshare with lower rates, Lyft normally runs between 5 to 7 cents less than Uber, on average. Lyft does not take cash. Lyft does take the following payment methods:

  • American Express
  • Visa
  • Mastercard┬«
  • Discover
  • PayPal
  • Apple Pay
  • Google Pay
  • Venmo
  • A direct link to your check account in some cities

While Lyft accepts and has the ability to store multiple forms of payment, you may wonder, how to delete a credit card from Lyft, or how to delete a debit card from a Lyft account. Well, that is a great question. Unfortunately, the ONLY way to remove or delete a credit card from a Lyft account is to replace the card with another form of payment. Even if the Lyft app is deleted from your smartphone or tablet, whatever form of payment is on file with the ridesharing company will always be there UNLESS you cancel the credit or debit card that is on file with Lyft.
