Need a lift? If you do, Lyft might be a good option. The ride sharing service is expanding, adding 24 new markets to their ever expanding list. The total list of cities Lyft is now available in has reached 60, spanning a lot of areas you might not expect.


If the whole “getting into a car with strangers” sounds sketchy, that’s because it is. Lyft does their part to vet potential ride givers, having them pass a background check and provide DMV records. If that weren’t enough, riders can review and rank drivers — and only the top ranked drivers get the ability to offer rides.

The list of cities Lyft is expanding to spans the country, and doesn’t keep to the most major metro areas. While some are the metro area of choice for their geography, others are smaller areas that we were surprised to see on the list:

  • Albuquerque
  • Ann Arbor
  • Buffalo
  • Colorado Springs
  • Corpus Christi
  • Fresno
  • Jacksonville
  • Kansas City
  • Lexington
  • Lincoln
  • Louisville
  • Memphis
  • Modesto
  • New Haven
  • Newark
  • Oklahoma City
  • Omaha
  • Raleigh Durham
  • Rochester
  • San Bernardino
  • Spokane
  • Toledo
  • Tulsa
  • Virginia Beach

In addition to the new territories, Lyft is lowering all rates by 10% in celebration. It’s also the largest single day expansion in Lyft’s history, and they’ve got no plans on slowing down. The app is currently available in the Play Store, so check it out if you see your city on their list!
