Cost: Lyft suggests a donation amount for passengers to pay their driver and then takes a 20% cut of that amount.

Think of Lyft as on-demand ridesharing and an affordable alternative to a cab. "It's your friend with a car on demand," says John Zimmer, co-founder of the San Francisco startup.

The 3-month-old service now has 200 drivers in San Francisco.
