Have you heard the news? We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve raised $250 million to fuel Lyft’s expansion across the U.S. and beyond.

The friendships created on the way from A to B, the spontaneous acts of kindness, the fistbumps and sing-alongs – those are the moments that define Lyft and keep us cruising forward.
