I took a Lyft to the polls. Here’s what happened.

Rideshare companies Lyft, Uber and Lime offered cheaper rides to voters who needed transportation on Nov. 6. Reporter Jackeline Rodriguez tried it out but was underwhelmed by the experience.

Google also teamed up in the get out the vote effort which involved rideshare companies.

The Lyft driver did not want to take about politics, at all.
After my Lyft ride, I had a line to get into the polling station, but I was relieved I made it.
