SAVANNAH, GA — June 10, 2016– Business in Savannah reports that Lyft, the ride-sharing company, officially launched service in Savannah this week.
Lyft which is similar to rival, Uber, is an affordable, convenient service that matches drivers with passengers who request rides through their smartphone app, and passengers pay automatically through the app.
Last year, the city of Savannah adopted the Transportation Network Ordinance, which legally recognized ridesharing companies like Lyft and Uber after strong opposition from area taxi cab companies. They are now required to obtain permits, provide a local address and maintain insurance on each vehicle. Individual drivers are required to have general liability policies as well.
