      What Lyft is doing with autonomous vehicles. Lyft is a much smaller company than Uber, but the ride-sharing company is pushing just as hard as its rival in AV development. Lyft's AV team is headed.   It is how Uber and Lyft categorizes their service. They use the theory of a driver traveling down the road somewhere and while on their way there just happens to be someone else needing to go in that direction too. So for a fee you guve them a rid.

      Ridesharing First, ridesharing services like Uber use a specific dispatch algorithm to make sure the closest and most appropriate vehicle .   With ridesharing, valet companies, and soon driverless cars, the need for on-street parking is disappearing. We devote parking spots in major destinations for a few vehicles to park rather than provide space that makes traffic for dozens flow quicker. Right now, we’re at the very beginning of this transformation.

Those who don’t have a smartphone to download the app can book a ride by phone at What are the hours of.
