Throughout the year, Lyft has claimed its position as the dominating ride hailing service, as its competitor Uber fell off the radar.
Lyft has a stringent background check policy in place for its drivers, while also ensuring each of its drivers with a $1 million United States dollars liability policy.
It also underscores just how much the relationship between Google and Uberhas deteriorated in recent months. The FBI is also reportedly investigating whether Uber created software, dubbed Hell, to illegally track the location and rates charged by Lyft drivers. Uber recently kicked out CEO Travis Kalanick and replaced him with Dara Khosrowshahi after slew of allegations of sexual harassment, sexism and other inappropriate behavior within the company.
Lyft raised $600 million in fresh funding in April, mostly from large global investment funds.
Uber once dominated the USA ride-hailing scene with around 90 per cent of the market, but according to some surveys Lyft has whittled that down to around 75 per cent as Uber has continued to grapple with a series of scandals. If such a deal goes through, though, it could be a major boost for Lyft, which has always been a distant No. 2 to Uber in size and in war chest.
