Lyft now serving Pahrump


Lyft now provides service to Pahrump and all of Clark County, officials with the ride-hailing company said.

Lyft had primarily served the Las Vegas Valley when state regulators allowed ride-hailing companies to operate in Nevada in September 2015.

The company has now expanded into the rural areas of Southern Nevada, company spokeswoman Victoria Pomo said Sept. 7.

The announcement comes amid Lyft’s national expansion, with 40 states covering 94 percent of the U.S. population now having some type of service, Pomo said.

To mark the announcement, Lyft is offering a $5 discount to first-time riders with the code LYFTLOVE17.
