    I know its cashless with Uber, just wondering if the same applies with Lyft? Would love to pay in cash as coming from Canada, limits credit card options immensley, with exchange/user fees.

    The only real way to pay with "cash" is to use a debit card. You can also use Paypal.

    I wonder if a prepaid card would work? like one of those visa ones you can preload with cash?

    Lyft-ed from Lyft FAQ:

    Lyft works with any major credit card, including American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover, as well as debit cards and prepaid cards. ​

    To be safe I'd use one purchased in the U.S. but your mileage may vary.

    Here you go, taken from this page
    (If you wonder if a certain card will work, go to your account and attempt to enter it.)

    Setting up the app for payment:
    The Lyft app stores your payment information. You can add multiple forms of payment and choose on the Payment screen which is used for your ride.

    Our payments are processed by Stripe. Please review Stripe's FAQ should you have any questions or concerns about the security of your payment information.

    Accepted payment methods:
    We accept any major credit card, including American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover, debit cards tied to a checking account, and prepaid cards. Rides can also be paid for with PayPal (iOS and Android), Apple Pay, and Android Pay.

    Add your payment information as you sign up:
    Lyft works with any major credit card, including American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover, as well as debit cards and prepaid cards.

    Drivers cannot take cash as payment, remember Lyft wants their cut. The driver can take tips in cash. You have to watch any driver that tells you they will take cash if you did the ride in the app. The cash will become a pretty large tip since your card will still get charged.
