Need a Lyft? The Traverse City Ticker reports that the ride-sharing service Lyft has launched in northern Michigan:
Lyft’s website and app confirm the company is active locally (Lyft representatives did not respond to requests for comment on the local launch). How soon Lyft will be able to offer instantaneous, round-the-clock service – as is available in larger markets like Detroit and Chicago – remains to be seen. Attempts by The Ticker over the past week to hail rides on the app produced mixed results: No drivers were listed as available Friday night or Saturday morning, but rides were instantly available on some weekdays, including both early morning and late afternoon Monday.
