Lyft announced this morning that it has launched its ride sharing service in Washington’s capital city.
To catch a Lyft in Olympia, users first must download the smartphone application, and then simply tap the request button. Let your diver know if you’re riding solo or with friends and if you need a standard sedan or a larger vehicle. When the ride is over pay through the application and rate your driver.
Ridesharing can be a great resource in avoiding alcohol-related driving incidents. Studies have shown that ride sharing can reduce alcohol-related driving arrests by up to 51 percent and DWI deaths by more than 10 percent.
Lyft is currently available to 95 percent of the U.S. and Toronto, Canada. A full list of cities where Lyft operates can be found online..
