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. When using Lyft, passengers have three options when it comes to choosing their ride: Lyft: the original offering that matches a passenger (and their friends) with a driver nearby; Lyft Line (currently available in San Francisco and Los Angeles): shared rides along shared routes, priced for daily use. Once passengers set their destination, Lyft will connect them to a ride already going the same way; and Lyft Plus: Lyft's six-passenger ride for when passengers need more space, or want to roll with more of their friends.
