SAN FRANCISCO and LONDON – Lyft, the fastest growing ridesharing company in the US, and Trafi, the mobility tech platform, today announced a multi-modal mobility partnership highlighting Trafi’s transit information management platform within the Lyft app.
Lyft is continuously investing to expand mobility options to deliver against its mission of improving people’s lives through the world’s best transportation. By partnering with Trafi, Lyft is able to provide passengers with information about transit options, further pursuing its vision of building cities around people instead of cars.
Starting in Santa Monica, Lyft passengers will see local transit options provided in-app, allowing passengers to choose the most affordable and flexible trip that works for them. Trafi and Lyft plan to expand similar functionality and new offerings to additional cities in the near future.
“We’re committed to providing more options for people to get around without owning a car by providing information about transit nearby in our community,” said Lilly Shoup, Senior Director of Transportation Policy at Lyft. “With the help of Trafi’s technology, we are able to seamlessly provide our passengers with public transit options right in the Lyft app.”
“Trafi is striving towards making mobility services the first choice worldwide. Mass mobility solutions are no longer part of the future, but becoming reality today. Our technology enables vehicle manufacturers, transportation companies and cities to develop or enhance their mobility offerings. Therefore, we are proud to collaborate with Lyft, joining forces to make our cities more sustainable and run with smarter transport,” said Martynas Gudonavičius, CEO and Co-Founder of Trafi.
