Lyft 100 City Expansion Finishes Ahead Of Schedule
Lyft has already met its major goal for 2017.
The ride-hailing company on Thursday launched in 10 new cities, bringing its total new launches past 100 — the goal it announced at the beginning of the year. Lyft added its first 40 cities of 2017 in late January, and added 54 more in late February at the peak of #DeleteUber.
Thursday’s launches bring that total up to 104. Most of those cities already had Uber, but in 16 markets — mostly on the smaller side — Lyft is the first ride-hailing option available.
“This puts us nine months ahead of schedule in our rapid growth plan, and we are excited to continue this momentum of bringing safe and affordable rides to even more cities throughout the nation,” said Jaime Raczka, head of early stage markets and expansion at Lyft, in a statement.
Here are the 10 new cities getting Lyft:
- Gainesville, Florida
- Tallahassee, Florida
- Greater Maine
- Lawton, Oklahoma
- Stillwater, Oklahoma
- Beaumont, Texas
- El Paso, Texas
- Killeen, Texas
- McAllen, Texas
- Waco, Texas
