Introducing Lyft profiles, a new feature that gives passengers and drivers the option to share fun facts about themselves and discover mutual friends and interests.
Calling all Android users!
We’re proud to announce that starting today, you can pay for your Lyft rides using Google Wallet. Lyft’s integration with Google Wallet offers an additional payment option for on-the-go passengers that is easy to use, convenient, and secure.
Last week, we came to you with a challenge: give us your best interview tips, and we’ll donate one Lyft ride per tip to Dress for Success, an organization that provides career support and development for disadvantaged women. Our goal was to donate 1,000 rides.
Today, we’re announcing a major step forward in our mission to reconnect people and communities through better transportation.
With an additional $530 million in funding, led by Rakuten, we will accelerate more quickly toward a world where every seat is filled and every driver and passenger is empowered to join together in improving our economy, environment and local communities.
In 2014, we made major advances to transform transportation with new product experiences like Lyft Line and with scaled systems to power Lyft’s 5x growth in rides. With even more ambitious growth and innovation planned for 2015, we’re excited to share that Peter Morelli has joined Lyft to lead and grow our talented engineering team.
February was chock-full of excitement, with the Super Bowl, the GRAMMYs, New York Fashion Week, Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras, the Oscars, and of course George Lopez in a lowrider.
Nothing, however, made your month brighter than the little things in life (like pizza). Here are the happiest moments of February, according to your tweets:
When Lyft launched the first peer-to-peer ridesharing community in 2012, it was critical to design a service that everyone - our parents, our siblings, our best friends - felt great about using. As part of our continued efforts in building this foundation, today we’re proud to partner with It's On Us, a White House-led initiative to end sexual assault.
When it comes to volunteering, San Francisco Lyft drivers are unstoppable. A few months back, they partnered with Little Brothers to gives rides to seniors in their communities. Not long after, another group volunteered with Project Open Hand to provide nutritious meals for their elderly neighbors.
We have exciting news to share from the Virginia Lyft community. Today, Governor Terry McAuliffe signed legislation authorizing peer-to-peer transportation in the Commonwealth!
