Lyft launches in Duluth
Lyft has landed in Duluth as the city’s ordinance regulating the smartphone-enabled rideshare service went into effect this week.
The company said in a news release Thursday that “anyone and everyone within the coverage area will be able to get a safe and affordable ride with the download of an app.”
The app did not appear to allow riders to be picked up in Superior, though Wisconsin can be chosen as a destination.
The other major rideshare app, Uber, has yet to begin service in Duluth and does not have a launch date, though WDIO-TV reported that the city has issued Uber its license to operate.
