Winter is here, can you believe it? Well, for us it’s no bad news since we are not in Westeros and white walkers are fiction.

As you might already know from the official blog of Lyft, this fall has been rich in events for the compan, so get ready for some really long and super-informative read!

Lyft is Legit in All of Pennsylvania

The question of whether ride-sharing services like Lyft were going to stay in the state and particularly in Philadelphia was acute for most of the fall of 2016 and was source of worries for both Philly’s Lyft drivers and riders. However, now residents of Pennsylvania can stay calm –  a legislation has been approved to make ride-sharing legal all over the state. Yay!Lyft Pennsylvania
