Lyft IPO: key facts

Lyft, the San Francisco-based ridesharing start-up, has beaten Uber to the punch by filing for an IPO. One of the so-called decacorns expected to list this year, Lyft was founded in 2012 and operates in 300+ North American cities. Over the last two-and-a-half years the firm has increased its market share to 39 percent with 18.9 million active users – but seen its operational costs spiral accordingly.
