Lyft Shuttle is a Rideshare Service with Fixed Routes and Buses

Ridesharing companies like Lyft and Uber promise to be the future of public transportation, and Lyft Shuttle seems to be a natural extension of that ideology. The new app, which relies on Lyft's algorithms as well as a previously released feature called Lyft Line, connects users with buses that drive along popularly traveled routes throughout cities during high-traffic time periods.

With Lyft Shuttle, the company has effectively delivered a more agile, mobile, and nimble version of typical city buses. Because the app responds directly to user requests, buses have the luxury of only running when there's the requisite demand, while users can rest easy with the guarantee that Lyft will not vary its pricing during rush hour (since rush hour is precisely when the service will be available.)
