The Lyft app will now display bike lanes, in order to help cyclists plan safe routes. Currently, the Lyft app will display bike lanes as solid green, and bike-friendly roads as dotted green. The new feature is aimed at improving road safety for cyclists who use the ride-hailing app. The new bike lane features can also be used with the bikes and scooters that can be rented from Lyft.
Lyft has indicated that it is the first major ride-hailing app that has included a feature like this. The new safety features for cyclists may bring more consumers to not only use the feature but to also rent two-wheel vehicles from the Lyft app.
