Lyft

Lyft is a privately held, San Francisco–based transportation network company whose mobile-phone application facilitates peer-to-peer ridesharing by enabling passengers who need a ride to request one from drivers who have a car. Unlike traditional taxis, Lyft drivers do not charge fares but instead receive "donations" from their passengers. Lyft's tagline is "your friend with a car." According to the company, Lyft generally costs about 30% less than the price of a similar-length cab ride. Lyft currently operates in 60 US cities, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, Seattle, Chicago, Washington D.C.
