Business description: Lyft is an on-demand ridesharing service owned and operated by Zimride that is currently operating in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Using the Lyft iPhone app, passengers can instantly request a pickup, and a safe, friendly driver will arrive within minutes. The Lyft staff carefully selects pre-vetted, trustworthy drivers from the community who swiftly get passengers to their destinations. Lyft's app, available for iPhone and Android devices, lets users request rides with vetted drivers who have extra space available in their vehicles. The company said the service typically costs as much as a third less than traditional taxis. Lyft launched as an offshoot of Zimride.
