2017 has been an important year for the Lyft community. Earlier this month, Lyft completed thei 500 millionth ride and our service is now available to 95% of the U.S. population — up from 54% at the beginning of the year.
While we’ve made progress towards our vision, we’re most excited about what lies ahead. The fact remains that less than 0.5% of miles traveled in the U.S. happen on rideshare networks. This creates a huge opportunity to best serve our cities’ economic, environmental, and social futures.
