3...2...1... Lyft Off

Posted By on Fri, Sep 1, 2017 at 2:36 PM

Ridesharing service Lyft announced yesterday that it has expanded to offer statewide services to a total of 40 states, including Arizona.

Before today, there were only eight states that had full coverage from Lyft, but this gives them the largest coverage area of any ride sharing company in the U.S. (we're looking at you, Uber), with services available to 94 percent of the U.S. population (287 million people).

Although Uber's ride service launched in Tucson several years ago and its food delivery service launched in the city last month, Lyft’s introduction will offer residents an alternative to Uber, which has been  entrenched in controversy over the last year.
