So somethingthing like uber’s Express pool option, lyft just launched shared saver to help people spend less money for shared rides. But what makes Lyft’s option more attractive is that riders will never experience surge pricing.
The shared saver service works by you walking to a designated pickup location which will be a maximum of a few blocks away, to meet your driver and co-riders. Same goes for your drop-off location.
Lyft’s long-term plan entails encouraging more people to take shared rides. Last June, Lyft updated its app to make shared rides much more visible.
