Lyft Announces New Lyft Rentals Car Rental Service

# Roommates, Lyft is here walking on the neck, while the company continues to find ways to pick up our parts. According to reports, the popular carpool app officially ventures into the rental car arena.

Lyft is responsible for transporting customers to major cities on a daily basis, but the company now wants you to drive yourself. @CNN reports that Lyft rolled out a new service called Lyft Rentals earlier this week, which allows users to rent cars for up to two weeks at a time. Lyft Rentals will initially be available from Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay, where the company has been testing the service for several months.

As far as pricing is concerned, Lyft says customers will not be faced with mileage-based charges and additional fueling charges that other car rental companies typically add. Instead, Lyft Rentals’ approach is “no lines, hidden charges or last minute vehicle model changes”. A recent example includes a car in the San Francisco area priced at $ 35 per day, but prices may vary depending on the day and time of booking – some prices as high as $ 149 per day on weekends.

In addition, Lyft also offers credit to cyclists of up to $ 20 per trip for trips to and from its rental lots, including two in Los Angeles, one in San Francisco and one in Oakland. Lyft Rentals is currently marketed as a convenient service for things like daily shopping or moving, but even if customers choose to use a rental car for just a few hours, they still have to pay for a full day.

Cars currently available for rental include a Mazda 3 sedan or Mazda CX-5 SUV in Los Angeles, and a Volkswagen Passat or Volkswagen Atlas SUV in the Bay Area.

Roommates, what do you think?
