With the start of the new year, I wanted to take a quick look back at an exciting 2016 and say thanks for making it possible!
Over the last 12 months, the Lyft community completed more than 160 million rides — triple the number in 2015. On New Year’s Eve alone, you took over a million rides. To put that into perspective, in our short 4 year history, it took the entire first year to reach our first million rides together. And now, thanks to your support, Lyft is the fastest growing rideshare service in the country.
On New Year’s Eve, I got to continue a tradition of getting out on the road as a driver for a few rides and saw first hand how each ride is an opportunity to bring people together. Our team’s enthusiasm to continue providing you with the best possible service is stronger than ever. Thank you for riding with Lyft, and we can’t wait for an even bigger year together in 2017.
Happy New Year!
John Zimmer, Lyft Co-Founder and President
