If you’ve been living in San Francisco you’ve probably seen a lot of cars wearing this pink mustaches. For those who are not familiar with this concept, this is called ‘Lyft’. It’s a SF-based startup that created an app through which you can book a ride. Lyft does not have its own drivers, instead they have ‘volunteers’ driving around for them. At the end of the ride they are ‘donated’ money buy the users. Basically anybody can sign up to become a Lyft-driver and earn some extra money. The guy who gave me a ‘lyft’ me today actually does this as a full-time job. Anyway, today was my first Lyft-ride. I downloaded the app and started checking it out. Used it to get from school to my internship. Very interesting and fun experience.
