Lyft, a ride-sharing smartphone application, will have a
community launch event on Thursday.
The event will be from 6 to 8 p.m. at Anodyne Coffee Roasting
Co. in Walker's Point, according to the event invitation. There
will be live bluegrass music, drinks, and food from Urban
Caveman and Milwaukee Cupcake Co.
According to the invitation, event attendees need to download
the Lyft app in order to get into the event.
“What is Lyft, you ask? We're your new best friend with a car.
You can use the Lyft app to get outrageously affordable rides on
demand,” Lyft said in its invite.
Lyft publicly launched in 2012. It lets users call a car and pay
for transit through their smartphone. Drivers can sign on to
offer rides, and both driver and rider can rate one another
after the trip.
