Lyft and Uber continue driving in Colorado Springs

A little over a year ago, Lyft and Uber rideshare services came to Colorado Springs. They provide an easy and cheap way for passengers to travel, much more affordable that taxi cabs and much more consistent than the Colorado Springs bus service.
While there are still a lot of concerns surrounding these services nationwide, they continue to thrive in Colorado Springs as more and more people are finding out how convenient, cheap, and friendly this new concept can be.
Riders must download a mobile app on their phone to access and request the services, but once they're set up it becomes a push of a few buttons, a short wait, and they're greeted by a friendly drive.
Prices vary based on distance and length of ride and rates vary by city, but Colorado Springs Lyft rates as of 8/8/15 are as follows:
