Lyft started its service in 2012 and attracted a huge number of passengers in the U.S. recently. Whereas the ride-hailing giant Uber had 2 million of rides in 2016, Lost still has to go a long way to challenge Uber. The company gave 100 million rides within first three months of 2017 which is due to its expanded service across more states in the US.

The efforts of the Lyft made it ready for 94 percent of the population US from 54 percent in the starting of the year. However, Uber still holds more than 70 percent of the US market as the major ride-hailing company. Recent incidents have affected the company image, but Uber is healing it with its ‘180 days change’ campaign.
