What is Lyft?
 
Lyft is a mobile app that lets you request a ride from a fabulous, hand-selected community of drivers. Not only is Lyft more convenient, reliable, and affordable than a cab, we practically guarantee you’ll arrive with a smile! 
Your pink-mustached chariot awaits!

Lyft is an on-demand ridesharing service owned and operated by Zimride that is currently operating in San Francisco, CA. and has recently come to LA. 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.

See you this evening!
