Here is pretty much everything you ever wanted to know about Lyft.

Lyft Statistics user count and Facts 2023

Lyft is a transportation network company (TNC) that operates a ridesharing platform, connecting passengers with drivers through a mobile app. It was founded in 2012 by Logan Green and John Zimmer and is headquartered in San Francisco, California.

Lyft provides a convenient and accessible alternative to traditional taxis and car services. Passengers can request rides through the Lyft mobile app, specifying their pickup and drop-off locations. Nearby drivers who are registered with Lyft can accept the ride request and pick up the passenger. The app provides real-time tracking of the driver’s location and estimated arrival time.

Lyft drivers use their own personal vehicles to provide rides to passengers. They go through a screening and onboarding process that includes background checks, driving record checks, and vehicle inspections to ensure safety and quality.

The Lyft app provides various features and options for passengers, including the ability to choose the type of ride (such as standard, shared, or luxury), estimate the cost of the ride upfront, and rate and provide feedback on the driver after the ride is completed. Payment is handled through the app, allowing for cashless transactions.

Lyft operates in numerous cities across the United States and Canada, as well as select cities in other countries. It has expanded its services beyond traditional ridesharing and offers additional options, such as Lyft Line (carpooling service) and Lyft Scooters and Bikes (micromobility services).

No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
