Lyft is a provider of transportation-as-a-service (TaaS) and operates in the US and Canada. The company offers ride-sharing, access to autonomous vehicles, and other transportation options via its platform and mobile-based applications. The company operates as a peer-to-peer marketplace between drivers and riders.
Incorporated in 2013, Lyft offers different ride options via private vehicles, including traditional private, shared, and luxury rides through the Lyft app. Apart from ride-sharing, Lyft offers bike and scooter-share rental options to users. Lyft collaborates with different organizations to offer transportation services. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
Lyft's network of light vehicles is referred to as the Express Drive program. Drivers can strike short-term rental agreements with Flexdrive or a third party for vehicles to provide ridesharing services. Lyft Rentals offers car rentals for a particular period of time for personal use. Lyft Driver Centers and Lyft Auto Care allow drivers and riders to request auto maintenance and collision repair services that are provided via the Lyft Platform.
