Global ride sharing alliance emerges across Asia and US
Issue Date: 2015-12-16

Lyft has announced new international partners GrabTaxi and Ola, expanding the global ridesharing agreement it first introduced with Didi Kuaidi earlier this year. In addition to China, we've now extended Lyft's footprint to Southeast Asia and India, covering nearly 50 percent of the world's population.

When we think about international expansion, we think about our community, and ensuring every passenger has access to safe, convenient, and reliable rides everywhere they travel. By establishing strategic partnerships with local market leaders Didi, GrabTaxi and Ola, we're able to remove many of the pain points and language barriers that often come with foreign travel.

Travelers simply open their Lyft app like they would at home, request a car, and input their destination. This will all be seamless to the passenger and driver. Starting early next year, just open the Lyft app and ride.

We're thrilled to partner with Didi, GrabTaxi and Ola to make more progress toward our mission of reconnecting people and communities through better transportation.
