Lyft wants to try to get users to take fewer cars and is now offer different modes of transportation like scooters, bike-sharing, public transit and car rentals.
The app will now make it easier for customers to switch between these different modes of transportation.
The Verge reported that non-car options like bike-share and transit show up at the bottom of a list of ‘nearby’ options on the Lyft home screen. These new options will have different tabs at the bottom of the screen and tapping on them opens a different map view.
Soon, Lyft will also offer customers a ‘Mode Selector’ option, which lets users compare costs and travel time between different modes of transportation.
“At Lyft, we’re working toward a future where cities are centred around people, not cars,” John Zimmer, co-founder and president of Lyft, said in the article. “The changes we’re making today will unlock better transportation solutions — whether that’s a trip on public transit, a bike ride or a shared Lyft — for people in cities around the country.”
MobileSyrup has reached out to Lyft Canada to learn if these options are now available to customers yet.
