Sidecar and Lyft are examples of innovative and entrepreneurial solutions to a real world problem. In cities like San Francisco, Taxis fit only one part of our transportation needs. As with many areas of our community, new ventures bring fresh ideas. It's time that these much needed services for our community be supported by policy makers. Sidecar and Lyft have both received a warm reception from customers and drivers as they enrich our economy, tread lightly on our wallets and reduce stress on the environment. It's time for us to insist on innovative transportation alternatives.

      This is the best idea for ride sharing, it is friendly and affordable and I will never use anything else.

      Because buying a car is not an option for me so I rely on Seattle Metro and Lyft to get me to work and grad school. Because bus services are going to be cut, I will depend upon Lyft even more. Lyft is a safe option for me when I get out of class down town at 10:00 pm. Please don't get rid of services like Lyft.

      This service is beneficial to the people. Taxi services are poor and the government should not protect products that the consumers don't want.
