(NEW YORK) -- Ride-sharing service Lyft plans to begin operations in New York on a limited basis Friday evening and will rollout full service in the "coming weeks."
Lyft pairs users with regular drivers looking for extra cash. Users then reserve the car through a smartphone app and pay online.
As part of the agreement to operate in New York City, they will pause operations in Buffalo and Rochester by August 1.
