How Much Will it Cost to Develop a Ride-Sharing App like Lyft

Rideshare and taxiing apps have become a major industry in the last few years. While we've had Taxi companies since the 1950s if not earlier; the ability to hire a drive at your fingertips is incredibly innovative, and it shows through the market success of brands like Lyft and Uber. In fact, one estimate puts the total net worth of the Lyft company at roughly $18.34 billion. So, how can your own business or company get involved with this sort of success?

Creating an app similar to services like Lyft won't be easy, and there are many things for you and your team to consider such as the vehicles you'll be using, insurance, the development of your platform, as well as your hiring and screening practices, and other important policies. When it comes to developing an app like Lyft though, the benefits of the industry are clear:
