As we approach five years of working to improve people’s lives with the world’s best transportation, we’re excited to announce a big milestone: Lyft is now providing over one million rides per day.
Hitting this mark caps years of rapid expansion. For 48 consecutive months, Lyft has experienced ride growth in excess of 100% year over year.
This year has been especially exciting for Lyft. In January, we set a goal of launching in 100 new communities across the country by the end of 2017. When we accomplished that in three months, we kept going — successfully launching in 160 cities by the end of June. Today, Lyft operates in over 360 communities, serving nearly 80 percent of the U.S. population.
Since day one, we’ve worked to embed hospitality in everything we do. As more and more people choose Lyft and we continue to grow, we’ll remain focused on providing the best experience to our passengers and drivers.
Here’s to a million more rides tomorrow. And the next day, the day after that, and… you get the idea.
