On Lyft’s mission:
Lyft was founded nearly six years ago with the mission to improve people’s lives through the world’s best transportation.
Our vision was to reinvent cities around people, not cars. That vision originated with one of our cofounders, who spent his life in Los Angeles, sitting in traffic and thinking to himself, there has got to be a better way. Our other cofounder truly believed in hospitality and wanted to communicate with and connect people and communities. Together they determined as a human society, there had to be a better way to solve for a traffic pain points and the fact that people sit alone in their cars, travel great distances to work, release emissions and all the downsides of traffic today.
On the subject of Lyft, here are their core values:
- Be Yourself.
- Uplift Others.
- Make It Happen.
