Paving the Way for Greener Cities

Paving the Way for Greener Cities

California Governor Jerry Brown, Senate President Kevin de León and other environmental leaders have made it clear that we must reduce fossil fuel consumption to secure a sustainable future. We believe we can play our part by developing innovative technology that connects people in their cities and takes cars off the road.

Lyft Line is how we’re getting there. For every seat that’s filled, that’s one less car on the road.


Lyft Partners with It's On Us

Lyft Partners with It's On Us

When Lyft launched the first peer-to-peer ridesharing community in 2012, it was critical to design a service that everyone - our parents, our siblings, our best friends -  felt great about using. As part of our continued efforts in building this foundation, today we’re proud to partner with It's On Us, a White House-led initiative to end sexual assault. 






D.C. Affirms Commitment to Ridesharing

D.C. Affirms Commitment to Ridesharing

In August 2013, Washington, D.C. became one of the first cities in the nation to grant Lyft temporary operating authority — allowing drivers to continue providing safe and reliable rides while we worked with the city on a permanent solution. We are excited to announce that today the DC City Council enacted a regulatory framework officially authorizing ridesharing in the District!






Lyft Launches in NYC

Lyft Launches in NYC

Tonight, after making positive progress with local and state leaders, Lyft will launch in all five boroughs of New York City. We’ve finalized an agreement to offer immediate access to our friendly, affordable rides through a TLC-licensed model beginning at 7 p.m. Lyft will serve all corners of the city from Manhattan to Staten Island, starting with a limited beta launch and then a full rollout in coming weeks. 




Lyft's Insurance Policy

In 2012, Lyft worked with insurance industry leaders to pioneer our $1M excess liability insurance coverage to protect our community members. We stand behind this policy that, from the beginning, was designed to drop down to the first dollar and act as primary in the case that a driver’s personal policy does not respond. Millions of rides later, the policy has worked as designed and provided excellent coverage for the community.
