Lyft now serving Pahrump

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.
