But, before we get to the nitty-gritty, it's important to clarify that Lyft won't let you remove a credit card that you've selected as your default payment method.

  2. Tap the three lines at the top of the screen to open the menu.
  3. Press "Payment".
  4. Select the credit card you want to remove and press "Remove card".

If you don't see this option, it's probably because the card you're trying to remove is your default payment method. To be able to delete it, you will have to choose another payment method and make it the default. Here's how to add a new credit card:
