Lyft is driving into the countryside in an effort to raise ridership and steal market share from rival Uber. Lyft says it is offering service to passengers in every corner of 32 U.S. states, including hard-to-reach rural areas. The move boosts the number of states with full coverage to 40. Among the states, Lyft added Thursday to statewide service are Maryland and Virginia. Uber says it has near-statewide coverage in nine states and it doubts Lyft can provide timely service to remote areas.
