The ride-hailing and ride-sharing companies are rolling out partnerships with major tech companies in New York City and Los Angeles, with the first ride-share deals likely to be announced next week.
The companies have already struck deals with Lyft, Uber and Airbnb to provide rides to their customers and have plans to expand to other cities in the coming months.
The first rideshare deal announced by the two companies is with Largest Taxi, a ride-sharing company.
The company will give customers access to rides at Largiest Taxi locations, and will pay Uber and Lyft a cut of the revenue generated.
Uber is also partnering with the company Largieshare, which will provide rides for a limited time, and Lyft with a ride that will be free.
Uber and Largyshare are also expanding to L.A. and San Francisco, where they have plans for a similar partnership with UberX, an app that lets users pay for rides by using their smartphones.
In New York, Lyft and LAG will launch a new service, Largessy, that will give people access to free rides, which include one-way and return trips.
Lyft will pay Largeshare for the service and the two firms will share some of the ride revenue, said the company’s founder and CEO, Matt Weinberger.
The ridesharing companies have been looking to expand their services in the United States for several years.
Uber was valued at $50 billion in 2014, and has more than 5,500 U.S. locations.
We’re seeing the kind of expansion we’re seeing with Lyft and LyftX in San Francisco and other places, said Lyft’s Weinberger, adding that Largestshare will offer free rides in Los Angeles and New York.
Uber has also been expanding its presence in Los Feliz and Orange County, Calif., with the Los Angeles office expanding into more of those areas, according to Uber.
Largest has been providing rides to Lyft and Airbnb customers since at least 2014.
Largershare has said it will be offering free rides to users for six months.LAG will be the first company to make a deal with a large company, Weinberger said, adding it has been working closely with Lyft’s CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi, and the company has also begun work with Uber and other ride-service companies to ensure the service is a good fit for users.
Lag will have a partnership with the likes of McDonalds, Burger King and Starbucks, as well as other fast-food chains.
Uber, Lyft, LyftX and LIG will work closely with the companies to help customers find the right service for their needs, said Weinberger in a statement.LIG, which is owned by the same family that owns Uber, said it has also signed a memorandum of understanding with Burger King, Subway and Taco Bell.
LIG said it hopes to work with McDonalds and Burger King to bring more food options to the ride-sourcing marketplace.
The company is looking for new partners and partners to take advantage of the new partnership with LAG.
We are excited to be working with Lyft in the future and to see Largesseshare’s unique services expanded to other regions,” Weinberger wrote in the statement.
Earlier this month, Lyft announced that it would launch a taxi-hail app in Chicago, which it hopes will attract more rides.
The app will allow users to hail a vehicle and pay for a ride to the destination, or pay for an extra ride on the company app.
