SAN FRANCISCO — Ride-hailing service, Lyft, is testing a new product, which mimics the fixed routes and flate fares of a public transit bus service, reported The Verge.

The new feature, which is being tested out in San Francisco and Chicago, is an extension of Lyft’s carpool service, Lyft Line, and operates along a fixed route with predetermined pick-up and drop-off locations, the report said.

According to a Lyft spokesperson, the service, only available during weekday commute hours, from 6:30-10AM and 4-8PM, features fares fixed “at a low price point,” reported The Verge.
