Ride-Hailing Company Lyft is Coming to Sioux Falls
Lyft will be the first ride-sharing service coming to Sioux Falls. Mayor Mike Huether and city councilors made the announcement in a Monday morning press conference.
South Dakota is last state in the United States to get Lyft services.
This was posted today on the City of Sioux Falls Facebook page:
It's true! The ride-hailing company Lyft is taking the necessary steps to operate in Sioux Falls! The company recently was issued a state sales tax license and is working with the City’s licensing office on a transportation network company license. A team of City and State officials, as well as resident Greg LaFollette, have been working for months to attract Lyft to the city. Lyft is expected to launch operations in Sioux Falls as soon as they can recruit enough drivers. It’s possible that could be as early as spring 2018.
An interesting aspect of this company is that you'll be able to go to the Lyft site and rank your ride experience. The Lyft driver can also go to the site and rank you as customer.
