Lyft is a peer-to-peer transportation platform that connects passengers who need rides with drivers willing to provide rides using their own personal vehicles. Riders have to download the Lyft mobile app to their iOS or Android-based phone, sign up, enter a valid phone number and enter a valid form of payment (either a credit card or link to an Apple Pay, Google Wallet or PayPal account). The Company offers four types of rides within the app: Lyft, Lyft Line, Lyft Plus and Lyft Premier.
