If you didn’t know, now you know: Uber sucks. And they’ve sucked for a while. .
Lyft, launched in 2012 in San Francisco, CA, currently provide services to 195 cities across the US. From San Francisco to NYC, it covers a lot of major cities, one of which is Baltimore.
Lyft brands itself as your friendly neighborhood ride-sharing service and it’s grown significantly in Detroit. Launched as a mobile app in the summer of 2012 as a service of Zimride, it has grown exponentially ever since.
There have been some exciting innovations to the personal transportation industry in the last decade. One of those innovations is the advent of rideshare companies such like Uber and Lyft. In this post, we’ll focus specically on Lyft (because I dislike Uber).
For more than two years, Lyft and Uber have been able to drop off, but not pick up from LAX. That’s until tomorrow when travelers will be able to request a Lyft from Los Angeles International airport (LAX) legally.
If you follow this site (wow, your life) then you know that I am a big proponent of Lyft and especially when compared to Uber. Specifically, when I do use Lyft, I use their “Line” service because it’s economically sensible.
I’ve taken Lyft to San Francisco International (SFO) a handful of times and though it’s not the cheapest way to get to the airport, it’s cost-effective for the great conveniences it provides.
Now you can officially take a Lyft from Las Vegas’ McCarran Airport to the Vegas strip – the first car sharing service to operate in Vegas.
As quickly as $8 Lyft Lines replaced $5 Lyft Lines, they’re ending the more expensive promotion after just a couple weeks.
Those of you that read this site know that I prefer Lyft over Uber and specifically, the Lyft Line service is an efficient and reasonable transportation option.
Lyft has been threatening to end their $5 Lyft Line promotion for a few months now and they’ve finally pulled the plug on the five buck fares in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Lyft was my service of choice in San Francisco, so I was happy to read that we’ll be finally seeing Lyft cars in New York, specifically starting out in Brooklyn and Queens (though not without the expected barriers from the taxi commission).
