Uber competitor Lyft has introduced a new “Green Mode” options for users of its rideshare network that will allow passengers to choose to ride in an electric car.
The new mode adds to the rideshare’s company commitment to zero emissions which it announced in September 2018 via its blog.
All Lyft rides are already carbon neutral thanks to an offset program the company is running as part of the “Green Cities Initiative” commitment.
Now, Lyft is also committing to add thousands of electric vehicles to its rideshare platform to offer zero emissions transport options for its passengers.
The rideshare company announced the new option via their blog last week and says all its EVs will be be recharged with power from renewable sources.
For Lyft drivers who don’t own an EV, Lyft is also offering a rental program through its Express Drive program.
