Ride hailing service Lyft has opened a small office in the Twin Cities, setting the stage for a larger local expansion.
Located at 2120 Rice St. in St. Paul, 1,500 ft. driver support center for driver on-boarding, troubleshooting and recruiting resources per paywalled report.
“You can expect us to roll out more service offerings and other opportunities, reinforcing our focus of treating drivers best and being a leader in the gig economy,” said Chapin Hansen, Twin Cities market manager for Lyft.
The move sounds like a small but important first step that’s intended to evolve in Minnesota as the company grows closer to possible IPO.
“We’re looking at several options as we speak. It will definitely be a bigger facility that can meet the needs of our driver base in terms of support, vehicle maintenance and community gathering spaces.”
