Fueled by continuing demand for ride-hailing services, Lyft is expanding to another 50 cities in the United States, the company announced this week. The move comes on the heels of a 40-city expansion announced about a month ago.

The new cities stretch from coast to coast and include: Iowa City, IA, Ocala, FL, Topeka, KS, and Flint, MI. The complete list can be viewed here. Lyft expects to expand to about 300 US cities by the end of the year, allowing it to reach about 72 percent of the population in a bid to better compete against Uber and other mobility services.

Lyft was founded in 2012 and has been aligned with General Motors since January 2016, when the Detroit automaker announced a $500-million investment in Lyft to help spur its mobility and autonomous programs.
