BALTIMORE – Don’t look now, but Lyft is coming.
If you soon happen to see cars rolling around the Baltimore area sporting pink mustaches, you’ll know Lyft is here.
Lyft if a new, start-up, mobile ride-sharing service. It launches in Charm City at 4 p.m. ET on October 17th.
The company’s smartphone app, which first launched in San Francisco last year, connects users in need of rides with pre-screened drivers who live in the same area.
At the end of each ride, the app offers up a suggested donation based on miles traveled.
An average trip in California will run you about $12, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Ride-sharing programs like Lyft are providing commuters with less expensive and more social ways to get around. Passengers and drivers even greet each other with a ritualistic fist-bump.
You can download the smartphone app at the official Lyft website, and learn more about the service in the video below.
