(AP/Michael Buckner) Lyft Lyft’s LyftPilot, which was introduced in March 2017, allows users to request rides from passengers in their area by sending text message to the app.
The app is currently available on iOS and Android, and the company plans to launch a version for Windows and Mac in 2019.
LyftPilots are the next generation of ridesharing services, and they’re designed to provide rides to passengers at a cheaper price than Uber and Lyft.
The company has said that the first two-way ride will cost between $15 and $25.
Lyft is also expanding its network of drivers, allowing them to take on additional drivers for rides at a lower price than the traditional taxi industry.
The $1 billion investment will help Lyft expand its rideshared platform, while also bolstering its network and driving up its revenue.
Khosros is also a member of the board of directors of Uber.
