About Lyft, Inc.

Lyft was founded in June 2012 by Logan Green and John Zimmer to reconnect people and communities through better transportation. Riders are connected with drivers through an app. Payment is made from a debit card, credit card or PayPal account attached to the user’s account with Lyft retaining a percentage of the final fee. Upon the completion of a trip, drivers and riders rate one another through a five-star scale meant to guarantee pleasant trips between all parties using the Lyft service.

Lyft is one of the fastest growing rideshare companies in the U.S and is available in more than 200 cities, including New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The company has maintained a steady growth through a variety of investments from such companies as General Motors. As of January 2016, Lyft has raised more than $2 billion.

Lyft considers itself the preferred company by drivers and passengers for its safe and friendly experience, and its commitment to affecting positive change in the U.S. The company’s Lyft for Good program, inspired by drivers who gave back to their own communities, provides public service to a number of charitable projects to benefit the future of cities Lyft serves on a daily basis.
