Lyft, the popular ride-sharing
The results were generated by tabulating all the rides and most popular destinations: "These were where bellies were filled, drinks were had, and fists were pumped," according to Lyft's website.

This week, during the rush of New Year's Eve, Pruitt reminds riders that "Lyft is keeping its standard 200 percent prime-time cap during the holiday.

Much like other ride-sharing services, Lyft operates via an app on your smartphone where you request a pickup, and a Lyft driver scoops you up and takes you to your destination.
