App of the Week: Uber and Lyft

There’s a new way of getting a ride – right from the palm of your hand.

Uber and Lyft are now more popular than ever and now both have a presence in the Colorado Springs market.

Both apps let you ask for a vehicle to come pick you up. Uber lets you specifically chose the type of vehicle that will pick you up. Lyft is a little more casual as it has everyday folks pick you up.

Anyone can become a Lyft driver to make a few extra dollars. Of course, you’d have to pass a background check and go through tutorial training.

Legislation that is set to soon become law in Colorado establishes rules for the companies. These so-called ride sharing companies will be put under the oversight of the state’s public utilities commission. Gov. Hickenlooper is set to sign the bill.
