They’re furry, friendly, and in high demand. The amazing Lyft community has grown so quickly over the past few months, we temporarily ran out of pink mustaches. In San Francisco alone, the number of Lyft community drivers has doubled in the last two months. This is all part of our plan to keep up with growing demand, and will continue making it easier for you to find a Lyft ride when you need one!
After solving the mustache bottleneck and building out our operations team, we’re ready to spread the #LyftLove across the globe. To kick things off, we’re excited to announce that Lyft will launch in Chicago this weekend. Starting at 7am this Friday May 10th, we’ll have our Friends & Family launch, which will include our signature Mustache Parade celebration through the streets of Wicker Park. The following day, Saturday May 11th, Lyft will open for all Chicago users, and will be available seven days a week until 3am on weekends and 1am on weeknights.
This incredible growth has been a result of your passion and involvement in the community. And thanks to your help spreading the word about Lyft, every new city we launch has grown faster than each previous market.
As we continue expanding the Lyft movement across the world, we’re growing our Launch Marketing Team. If you love meeting new people, are a natural influencer, enjoy traveling and believe in social transportation, we’d love to meet you.
Thanks for driving us forward!
