Start of the Rivalry
The rideshare craze – at least, its current form – all started with the launch of Uber in 2009. The summer of 2012 brought about Uber’s main competitor in Lyft.
Finding a ride using either Lyft or Uber is incredibly easy, even for those not as technologically capable as others.
Become a Driver
As a driver in the ridesharing industry, there are different ways you can make a living.
Whether you want to put the pedal to the metal and drive full-time or just pick up a few rides here and there for supplemental income, Lyft drivers have excellent opportunities.
TOP RIDESHARE APPS
The best part is you can get a rideshare in a matter of minutes with just a few taps on your smartphone. You can feel safer when requesting a ride through a ride app than when traditionally calling a cab. These rideshare apps provide a convenient way to request a ride with fast pickup times and cashless payments. With the Freebird rides app you can get rewards for taking rides with Uber or Lyft.
Lyft app – for both passengers as well as drivers – has undergone some redesigns and improvements over the last couple of years and is quite user-friendly. You can compare price points and arrival times for various ride options, check all of your driver’s info, and easily redeem free ride credit with just a few taps.
Many people who drive for Lyft say they are happier driving for them than the competition.
Uber takes pride in having a more professional, less casual company culture. They did, after all, begin as a black car service only, and evolved into a rideshare service with multiple options.
Their app has been redesigned and improved over the last few years as well and is heralded now as being very user-friendly and easy to navigate for drivers as well as passengers.
