Last quote about Lyft

Sarah Soule
Workplace politicking of this kind is highly unusual. Typically, workplace activism is focused on issues internal to the firm. Workers go on strike because they are unhappy with pay or working conditions. They push companies to offer domestic-partner benefits or improve their environmental practices. The goal is to get the company itself to change its practices in some way.feedback

The latest person who has talked about Lyft is John Zimmer: “We created Lyft to be a model for the type of community we want our world to be: diverse, inclusive, and safe. This weekend, Trump closed the country's borders to refugees, immigrants, and even documented residents from around the world based on their country of origin. Banning people of a particular faith or creed, race or identity, sexuality or ethnicity, from entering the U.S. is antithetical to both Lyft's and our nation's core values. We stand firmly against these actions, and will not be silent on issues that threaten the values of our community.”.

We are in an exceptional time. We decided that the ban was stepping on our values and was enough of an affront that we were motivated to speak up. It crossed the line. And we had a platform we could use. We chose not to stay quiet out of fear of what could happen.feedback

Hai Thai

I feel safer to see these folks supporting us. I felt like they were standing up for me.feedback

Adam Braun

Everything always came back to [Tehillah's] debt. It was just so crushing. I witnessed the personal, the professional, the emotional toll that this was taking on the person I cared most about.feedback

Adam Braun

We are not right for every single student but there is a large group of young people in this country that college is a really really bad decision for and they need a new pathway.feedback

Kirill Evdakov

Unfortunately, we let many people down. We are working even harder the rest of this week to regain their satisfaction and we hope that they will forgive us.feedback

Sam Grobart - CNN

Setting up a new account with Fasten or RideAustin took all of a minute. I'm as brand loyal to a ride service as I am to a gas station chain – which is to say not at all.feedback

Shannon Liss-Riordan

The question of whether the drivers are appropriately classified as employees or independent contractors will just have to wait for another day.feedback

Vince Chhabria

The agreement is not perfect. And the status of Lyft drivers under California law remains uncertain going forward.feedback

Natalie Seidman - 1010data

People reacted to the news, and we saw an almost immediate increase in Lyft usage. This isn't something we'd ever really seen before. There's a stickiness to it. When someone downloads the Lyft app, they'll probably use it again.feedback

Lilja Owsley

I'd rather just take an Uber or Lyft instead of waiting for the L train for 10 or 15 minutes. I want to avoid walking a long distance to the subway station.feedback

Mike Ableson - General Motors

Cruise, Lyft, Maven are all bringing different parts of this singular solution around autonomous on-demand networks in urban environments.feedback

Mike Ableson - General Motors

If you assume the cost of these autonomous vehicles, the very early ones, will be six figures, there aren't very many retail customers that are willing to go out and spend that kind of money. But even at that sort of cost, with a ride sharing platform, you can build a business. We walked in not wanting so much to talk about the business today, but how do we work together to develop this idea of autonomous, on-demand networks in cities. If you take those three things, no one company has all three.feedback

Travis Kalanick - Uber

Ever since Uber's founding we've had to work with governments and politicians of all political persuasions across hundreds of cities and dozens of countries. Though we share common ground with many of them, we have had areas of disagreement with each of them. In some cases we've had to stand and fight to make progress, other times we've been able to effect change from within through persuasion and argument.feedback

We created Lyft to be a model for the type of community we want our world to be: diverse, inclusive, and safe. This weekend, Trump closed the country's borders to refugees, immigrants, and even documented residents from around the world based on their country of origin. Banning people of a particular faith or creed, race or identity, sexuality or ethnicity, from entering the U.S. is antithetical to both Lyft's and our nation's core values.

Bob Neveu

Increasingly, we are seeing the business traveler say, I'll just take an Uber or Lyft. For a lot of business travelers, it comes down to what's easiest on the road. Until last year, many companies were not set up to handle ride-share charges. That's changed, and as a result, more people are taking Uber or Lyft when they are on the road.feedback

John Zimmer - Lyft

We tripled our business and grew faster in 2016 than 2015. We're growing faster than the competition and that is what we're going to continue to do. In 2017, we're going to keep the pedal down and our focus has been taking care of drivers and passengers, which is leading to a greater preference for Lyft.feedback

Tony Douglas

Ride-hailing is nothing more than manual autonomous driving… Once you disperse with the driver, you have a license to print money. Someone else spent the money to educate the market and then we came in with a cool product. We will not be the largest, but we can be the coolest.feedback

Harald Krueger - BMW

Uber and Lyft do not operate their own fleets of cars. Owning the fleet means you can make offers that Lyft and others are unable to provide. For example providing car sharing for a specific community only.feedback

Tony Douglas

We had 14,000 people sign up in 4 days, in a market already served by Zipcar, Uber, Lyft and Car2go.feedback

Tony Douglas

Ride hailing is nothing more than manual autonomous driving. Once you dispense with the driver you have a license to print money.feedback

Adrian Durbin - Lyft

We were pleased to reach an agreement with the Baker Administration that maintains the high safety standards we have always observed while keeping modern transportation options like Lyft available across the state.feedback

Charlie Baker

The safety and security of the riding public is our top priority, and I am pleased this agreement will set a national standard for the most comprehensive state background checks for TNC drivers in the country.feedback

Jennifer Haroon - Google

When you can't drive, it can be very isolating, and everyone wants to be able to go out, run their errands, go to the doctor, see their friends, on their terms. And that's what a self-driving car can really bring.feedback

Sheila Bryson - Lyft

Similar to how we work with Hertz and Maven on Express Drive, it's expected that vehicle access programs have multiple partners.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

You will also be able to add your car to the Tesla shared fleet just by tapping a button on the Tesla phone app and have it generate income for you while you're at work or on vacation, significantly offsetting and at times potentially exceeding the monthly loan or lease cost.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

This dramatically lowers the true cost of ownership to the point where almost anyone could own a Tesla. Since most cars are only in use by their owner for 5 percent to 10 percent of the day, the fundamental economic utility of a true self-driving car is likely to be several times that of a car which is not.feedback

Talmon Marco

Our drivers refer to Juno as 'we' – 'We at Juno'. When was the last time you heard an Uber driver saying 'We at Uber?feedback

Talmon Marco

As a follower, there are opportunities for us to be far more efficient in terms of how we spend dollars to attract both drivers and riders. Our economics are much better because of it.feedback

John Zimmer - Lyft

And I think that is why with the coming of smartphones and Lyft, you are actually able to deliver that true freedom.feedback

John Zimmer - Lyft

What we are delivering at Lyft is actually that freedom that everyone wants and has wanted when they turned 16, which is the ability to get where they want to go, when they want to go there. And I think that is why with the coming of smartphones and Lyft, you are actually able to deliver that true freedom.feedback

John Zimmer - Lyft

Lyft right now is not for sale. We believe that the best way to get to that ultimate vision of creating that alternative to car ownership as an independent business.feedback

John Zimmer - Lyft

Over the last couple of years as we have been our business, we have been talking to all of the major auto companies. And when we spoke to General Motors at the end of last year, they agreed with our vision in that consumers will move towards more of a Netflix or Spotify model where they buy a subscription for transportation.feedback

Dominic Angelo

The money and the action is in San Francisco. Millennials have taken over.feedback

Dominic Angelo

I'm all about the feels. If it feels good, I'm going to keep doing it.feedback

Dominic Angelo

I work about five hours and try to earn $30 per hour, which is a good wage for someone my age.feedback

John Zimmer - Lyft

Most of us have grown up in cities built around the automobile, but imagine for a minute, what our world could look like if we found a way to take most of these cars off the road. It would be a world with less traffic and less pollution.feedback

John Zimmer - Lyft

The car has actually become more like a $9,000 ball and chain that gets dragged through our daily life.feedback

John Zimmer - Lyft

Next time you walk outside, pay really close attention to the space around you. Look at how much land is devoted to cars – and nothing else.feedback

John Zimmer - Lyft

As a country, we've long celebrated cars as symbols of freedom and identity. But for many people – especially millennials – this doesn't ring true.feedback

Katie Dally - Lyft

Our passenger base is rapidly growing, especially as more business users and travelers switch to Lyft, so this is an opportunity to continue growing our market share with an additional product offering.feedback

Curtis Lee

It required a little bit more training on our end. We get our highest qualified drivers to provide the services. As of right now, we match our valets with rides that are going toward the location they go to at the end of the night.feedback

Curtis Lee

We looked at our consumer base and saw that our average customer was using us anywhere from ... two times per week to multiple times a day, every single day. So we really saw an opportunity to extend beyond parking for commuting purposes. How do we help the person who has their car, had some drinks, and can't decide if they want to take an Uber home, which would especially be an issue the next day for the commute?feedback

John Tague - Hertz Global

We consider this agreement to be largely complementary to our rental car business.feedback

John Tague - Hertz Global

The ride-share business is growing and we think this is one way we can be a part of that growth.feedback

Rahm Emanuel

Everything we've done – not just between taxis and ride-sharing, but in the sense of [bike-sharing program] Divvy and investing in public transportation – is to give commuters safe, reliable and comfortable choices.feedback

Anthony Beale

Fingerprinting was the biggest part of contention for a lot of my colleagues. If that study finds that fingerprinting is necessary, then we're going to bring it back to the council to implement mandatory fingerprinting for Uber and Lyft.feedback

Anthony Beale

I've been notified of at least four companies that said they will provide the same service. If Uber and Lyft choose to leave [in six months time], there's people ready to fill that void.feedback

Jay Wachtel

The accuracy of a fingerprint check is eons beyond what you could do in a name check.feedback

Stephen A. Saltzburg

The driver is in a pretty good position to engage in criminal acts. The car is moving, the doors lock.feedback

Dirk Ahlborn

Your Uber, Lyft, Taxi, will pick you up, bring you to the Hyperloop station or the airport, whatever is most convenient. It is one platform cooperating, bringing them all together.feedback

Dirk Ahlborn

For us, we want to make travel suck less. We don't believe we are the best people who have the best ideas. We have great ideas, but can we solve them all? the thinking behind the project.feedback

Nayantara Mehta - National Employment Law Project

They've basically been getting what they want in jurisdictions. This could very well make other cities feel like they can maybe pass laws they want to pass.feedback

Brishen Rogers

As the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has emphasized, background checks have limited predictive value and can have a disparate impact on minority drivers.feedback

Brishen Rogers

This is about politics. This is about the sort of companies cities want to embrace. And these issues are playing out through the lens of safety. But I don't think safety is the issue.feedback

Chris Nakutis - Uber

Disappointment does not begin to describe how we feel about shutting down operations in Austin. We hope the city council will reconsider their ordinance so we can work together to make the streets of Austin a safer place for everyone.feedback

Steve Adler

The people have spoken tonight loud and clear. Uber and Lyft are welcome to stay in Austin, and I invite them to the table regardless. Austin is an innovative and creative city, and we'll need to be at our most creative and innovative now.feedback

Ann Kitchen

Nobody wants them to leave and we're not asking them to leave. The voters have spoken and they want these requirements and I know that we can do that… I don't know why they would leave. We held the election that they said they wanted.feedback

Steve Adler

A 'no' vote is the vote that best puts everyone back to the negotiating table to best promote safety choices in the community.feedback

Josh Alpert

We were trying to figure out a way to reward Lyft for having better business practices and not violating our laws. Sadly, at the end of the day, it didn't make a difference.feedback

Travis Kalanick - Uber

Drivers value their independence – the freedom to push a button rather than punch a clock, to use Uber and Lyft simultaneously, to drive most of the week or for just a few hours. That said, as Uber has grown – over 450,000 drivers use the app each month here in the U.S. – we haven't always done a good job working with drivers. It's time to change.feedback

Vince Chhabria

Shouldn't you have estimated what the value would be through the entire class period?feedback

John Zimmer - Lyft

I think one thing that's pretty incredible that's happened here is that we've now made car ownership optional on both sides of the two-sided market. Historically – at Lyft we've talked about this for a long time – we want to make car ownership optional on the passenger side. But if you look now on the driver side with this program, you also don't need to own a vehicle to earn money on the platform and give rides to passengers.feedback

Dan Ammann - General Motors

We think our business and personal mobility will change more in the next five years than the last 50.feedback

Dan Ammann - General Motors

Obviously our business today, our core business at General Motors, is strongest outside of the urban centers. We look at this opportunity to really disrupt urban mobility through this strategic alliance with Lyft.feedback

Dan Ammann - General Motors

Our objective is to reshape the future of mobility. We expect our business and our industry to change more in the next five years than it has in the last 50.feedback
