A new ride sharing service, Lyft, has revealed that it has been in talks with the popular ride-hailing service Lyft for some time.
In a blog post announcing the new Lyft name, the company said the company has “received multiple offers” to develop the app, and has been working on a solution for several months.
Lyft will have its own dedicated app for iOS and Android, and its new platform will be the company’s answer to Uber’s app for ride-booking.
“Our mission is to enable people to share their adventures and passions with friends and family, while also building the safest, most secure, and fastest ways to share our lives with the world,” the company wrote in the post.
“The goal is to create an even more seamless, personal, and convenient experience for Lyft users and drivers.”
The new name, “Lyft,” was a nod to Lyft’s “Lyfe,” which stands for “love” in French.
The company added that it’s also working on ways to make Lyft more attractive to users in the U.S. and Canada, while keeping the company in the same country as its founders.
Lyndon says it will be launching a new app for U.K. users next month, but it has not said whether that will be for its European and Canadian markets.
The app will be a free ride service, and will be available on all major smartphone platforms.
The company did not elaborate on which smartphones it plans to release the app on.
Lyx will be partnering with local ride-share services and local businesses to bring their vehicles to the Lyft app, with some of those partners saying that they would be open to Lyft.
Lyft will also be making a special offer for rides in certain neighborhoods, with a special deal going to those with the most cars in the area.
Lyts launch comes at a time when Uber is ramping up its presence in the United States, and Lyft and Uber are now the biggest competitors in the ride-hire service business.
Lyft, which is based in San Francisco, had raised $8.5 billion (€6.3 billion) in funding from some of the world’s biggest tech companies, including Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, and Google.
Uber is also ramping its presence across Europe, and it has said it expects to add more than 20 million drivers in the European Union by 2021.
