It’s hard to talk about Lyft or Uber without mentioning the other, especially when you consider how similar both services are, and what both companies are trying to accomplish. For a while now Uber has offered a more luxurious service in the form of Uber Black where the cars tend to be fancier, which might be great if you want to get to somewhere in style.
Now it seems that Lyft is following suit with the launch of Lyft Lux. This comes in the form of Lyft Lux which offers a sedan, and Lyft Lux SUV which offers an SUV if you’re in need of a larger vehicle. According to Lyft, “You do it all. Your ride should, too. We’ve added two black car options — Lyft Lux and Lyft Lux SUV — so even when you’re dressed to the nines, Lyft offers a ride that suits your needs.”
Basically what this means is that if you want a ride and don’t want to take a chance on a bad driver, Lyft Lux could be it as the drivers part of this service will have a rating of 4.7 or higher, so that way you know that whoever your driver is, they have been rated quite highly by their previous passengers.
Lyft Lux is also said to be a tier higher than Lyft Premium which launched last year. The new service is in the process of rolling out to multiple cities nationwide, so do keep an eye out for it in the future.
