Lyft also mentioned that it has run over 500M rides to date and expanded coverage in the U.S. to 95% of the population, up from just 54% at the beginning of 2017.

“While we’ve made progress towards our vision, we’re most excited about what lies ahead. The fact remains that less than 0.5% of miles traveled in the U.S. happen on rideshare networks. This creates a huge opportunity to best serve our cities’ economic, environmental, and social futures.”
