"Lyft confirmed that it removed Split Pay, the feature that lets users split ride fares with other passengers. A spokesperson for the ride-hailing company didn't offer a reason for removing the feature, but said "easier and smoother ways to split your fare" are coming next year.

The Split Pay feature, which was added in 2014, offered users an in-app method of splitting a fare with up to five people from the phone's contact list. Uber, Lyft's direct competitor, still offers an in-app fare-splitting feature.

So for now, you'll need to resort to Venmo or other payment apps to make sure everyone pays their part when catching a ride with Lyft."

    I have taken Uber and Lyft 1000 times and I have never used that feature.
