Logan Green and John Zimmer had launched a company called Zimride in 2007, which worked on the idea of ridesharing. However, Zimride was aimed at offering long distance rides. This venture really paid off but the lack of the same service for short distance journeys seemed to be a drawback. This is when they came up with the idea of Lyft and launched it in the year 2012. The headquarters of this company is based in San Francisco in California.
