It’s an all-Lyft weekly update this week! Lots of good news on the Lyft front, including how quickly Lyft is capitalizing on Uber’s stumbles and gaining traction. Could Lyft overtake Uber? We’re far from that for now, but this week’s round up gives us a lot to consider! Today, senior RSG contributor John Ince covers all the latest Lyft news, including a new investment, new VP, and new partnership with medical transport.
Much like a Thanksgiving feast, today’s roundup is a medley of different stories. Top of the list is Uber paying hackers to delete stolen data on 57 million people, and what you should know as a driver and a passenger. Also in the round up – are driverless cars really around the corner? Do you agree with this journalist’s assertion? Wrapping up, an Uber co-founder does something admirable. All this and more in today’s round up with senior RSG contributor, John Ince.
Slowly but surely it looks like the Uber/Softbank deal is going through, but what does this deal mean for the future of Uber? In other news, how safe is Uber? A new case in the courts is demanding passenger safety information from Uber, but is it in Uber’s best interests to release this information? These questions addressed by senior RSG contributor John Ince – plus, a new study says raising rates on passengers wouldn’t increase driver earnings.
