    Lyft will now let you schedule trips ahead of time

    Ridesharing platform Lyft heard the people and the people wanted to schedule rides ahead of time. Starting today, Lyft is adding a new feature to let you schedule in advance that ride to the airport or crucial business meeting for which you need to be on time. Gett, a ridesharing service in New York, has offered this feature for more than a year and we’ve heard rumors Uber has toyed… Read More

  • Lyft gets back to Zimride roots with Lyft Carpool

    Lyft gets back to Zimride roots with Lyft Carpool

    Back in 2007 co-founders John Zimmer and Logan Green envisioned a new kind of mass transportation carpooling system connecting riders and drivers across the nation. They called it Zimride. But it turned out a lot more people wanted to get around the city than wanted to go the distance and the parent company was supplanted with something pinker and fuzzier a few years later. Lyft now wants you… Read More

  • Lyft Lowers Prices In Latest Rideshare War With Rival Uber

    Lyft Lowers Prices In Latest Rideshare War With Rival Uber

    Earlier this week I benefitted from a drop in Uber Pool pricing, noting my ride was a whole Starbucks medium-size latte less than Lyft Line. Lyft, fresh with a new billion dollars in funding, is now doing the same. Uber announced a reduction in price in more than 100 cities in the U.S. and Canada last week, most likely prompting Lyft to figure out the measures it would have to take to not lose… Read More

  • TC Cribs: A Look Inside Lyft’s Quirky, Hot Pink HQ

    We enter the land of ride-sharing startup Lyft on this week’s episode of Cribs. Lyft’s San Francisco headquarters are a bit like entering Willy Wonka’s factory – if it were painted head-to-toe in hot pink. Large mop-like displays in Lyft’s signature hue greet visitors to the 66,000 square-foot space on the edge of San Francisco’s Mission district. Read More

    Lyft Raises An Additional $150M, Including $100M From Carl Icahn

    It may not have the mega-valuation of rival Uber, but ridesharing startup Lyft’s new $150 million extension to its $530 million round from March certainly puts it in the upper stratosphere of startups in terms of perceived value. The new $150 million extension is led by Carl C. Icahn’s Icahn Enterprises, which put up $100 million of the total. It’s an unusual move by Icahn… Read More

    Lyft CEO Logan Green To Join Us At Disrupt NY

    The last time Lyft CEO Logan Green graced the Disrupt stage, in September 2013, the mobile ride-hailing service was a little more than a year old. Back then Lyft was available in just 10 markets, but was growing quickly thanks to an aggressive expansion roadmap that would take it into 25 U.S. cities by the end of that year. A lot has changed in the last 18 months, as Lyft has evolved from… Read More
