Lyft partnering with transit agencies

Lyft has partnered with the Dallas Area Rapid Transit agency, and the ride-sharing company is now an option on DART’s mobile ticketing application as well as the trip planner app. “We needed to begin a concerted initiative to work with transit agencies and planners to have Lyft be integrated into that network and to … help advance the goals of these agencies,” whether those goals are to alleviate congestion or enhance connectivity or something else, said Emily Castor, Lyft’s director of transportation policy.
