Following in the footsteps of Uber, Lyft was founded in 2012 by Logan Green and John Zimmer. With its pink mustache logo, Lyft promoted a friendly driving environment, although that was later replaced with more traditional signage. Lyft Line is the company's carpooling service.

In early 2016, General Motors invested half a billion dollars in Lyft to promote the creation of self-driving taxis and a car rental program for Lyft drivers. See Uber and transportation network company.
