Today Lyft, the fastest growing rideshare company in the U.S., is launching on Hawaii Island bringing its affordable, reliable rides to communities across the state’s largest island. The Hawaii Island launch is part of the company’s nationwide expansion to 25 new markets, which include Maui and Kauai. Lyft has been operating on Oahu since 2014.
In the last three months, Lyft has launched in more than 100 new cities. The ridesharing platform is now available in over 300 markets nationwide and continues to distinguish itself through its positive in-car experience, for both passengers and drivers.
To celebrate the arrival of Lyft, new passengers can use a special code LYFTLOVE17 to receive $5 off their first ride.
More than 700,000 drivers make their own flexible schedules and earn either a primary or supplemental income with Lyft. As the only rideshare platform to allow tips, Lyft drivers across the country have received more than $200 million in tips. Interested drivers can view the “Drive with Lyft” page to learn more about becoming part of the Lyft community.
How Lyft Works:
- Request: Whether you’re riding solo or with friends, you’ve got options. Just tap request and a driver’s there.
- Ride: After just a few taps in the Lyft app, a carefully-screened driver will be on the way to you — just set your pickup point.
- Pay: When the ride ends, just pay and rate your driver through your phone.
