Lyft has had to make changes to its car rental business to meet rising competition, and the company says it plans to open more car rental outlets.
The ride-hailing company is launching two new car rental centers in Phoenix and Phoenix, Arizona, according to a post on its blog.
Lyft’s Phoenix car rental outlet, which is scheduled to open in the city this month, will offer a full-service model, offering car rental services to drivers, and its Phoenix location will have a more casual vibe.
The new car rentals will be located in two locations: at the intersection of East Third Street and North Main Avenue in Phoenix, and in the parking lot at the corner of East Fourth Street and West First Avenue in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler.
The Chandler location will be the first of its kind, Lyft said.
Lyndon is a division of Uber Technologies, which also owns Lyft, LyftCars and Yellow Cab.
Lyman, which said in a press release that it expects to have 1,400 vehicles on its road network by 2018, said in the post that it is planning to expand into other cities.
Lyft said that it has more than 7,000 drivers and plans to add more locations in the coming months.
The company said it is also expanding its car rentals in cities where Lyft has been a major player.
It said in its post that the expansion will include adding more locations to its fleet in San Diego, New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles.
Lyft also said it plans an expansion in New York in the next three months.
