Lyft May Decide To Enter Japan's Ride-Hailing Market


Lyft is Uber’s main competitor in the United States but the latter is in a league of its own globally. Lyft doesn’t have the kind of international footprint that Uber does and it’s going to take it a very long time to get to where Uber is today.
