Lyft Launches 24 Cities in 24 Hours (on the 24th)

Now in 60 cities, Lyft is available in more U.S. markets than any other rides-on-demand platform

At the beginning of last year, Lyft was in just one city: San Francisco. We started 2014 in 20 cities, and as of yesterday had brought that number to 36. In the next 24 hours, Lyft will launch in 24 new markets, bringing our total to 60 cities across the U.S. — more than any other rides-on-demand platform. Thanks to our fast-growing community, we’re taking a huge leap forward in bringing affordable, safe, and friendly rides to all corners of the country.

This is by far the biggest launch day in Lyft history, and we have more to share. After seeing such a great response to our spring price cuts, we’re also lowering prices by another 10 percent across the board during this busy season. Now, both new riders and loyal passengers can enjoy the friendliest ride at the most affordable price.

As we’ve grown, we have recognized a need for reliable transportation options everywhere, in cities of all sizes, regardless of the level of car ownership. From Albuquerque to Newark and beyond, these cities have strong community roots and local hometown pride that make them all great fits for Lyft.

We’re excited to celebrate each new market with our very own Lyftapalooza. We’ve compiled a list of local shows, parties and promotions and will offer free rides for two weeks in every new city so residents can enjoy all the local culture and hidden treasures that their city has to offer.
