Lyft is looking to adopt the EV charging system and starting from small; it has already set up its free EV charging station in Portland where drivers can charge and instantly park their respective vehicles. Currently, the locations are distributed across various areas in the Portland metro area, including the newly-opened Hillsboro station, and is expected to expand upon further places too shortly.

What began as a practical, economical and somewhat eclectic shared mobility option (thanks to its famous pink mustache), from the city of San Francisco. It has not only been gaining presence in the most important cities of the country but has already transcended the US borders. And wherever it arrives, it triumphs.
Lyft is dedicated to the transport of passengers on demand in several countries, although its headquarters is in the Californian city of San Francisco. They are responsible for the development, marketing and operation of the homonymous mobile application, which was launched in June 2012 and allows contact between passengers and drivers.

In fact, it is a company that has positioned itself as the most worrisome competition, of traditional and Uber taxis and other shared-travel startups.
Since its initial success, Lyft has been conquering more and more markets and today it already offers its services in hundreds of cities in the US and Canada. What is a reality is that the platform that tried to connect people traveling in the same direction, works as a transport business?
