In 2019, Lyft will work to introduce thousands of electric vehicles (EVs) onto our platform, and will make it easier for riders to request them through Green Mode. These efforts will provide cleaner transportation options for Lyft riders, and increase net earnings for our driver community. Once adopted widely, EVs hold the promise of making cities more livable by dramatically reducing air pollution.
Additionally, this effort will reduce the number of emissions created by vehicles on the Lyft platform. The passengers will be able to choose a hybrid or electric vehicles through Green Mode – kicking off in Seattle starting today then expanding in other parts of the country.
