Finding a ride in Flint and the Tri-Cities is getting much easier now that Lyft, and Uber are expanding to cover the entire area.

Lyft made the announcement a couple of weeks ago, that they were bringing their service to Genesee County.  Lyft will also work in Saginaw, and surrounding areas now.

Uber had already been operating in Genesee County, but just made an expansion announcement.  UberX and UberXL will both be available in Saginaw, Bay City, and Midland.

The news has two positive effects on the area.  Now people have more options when trying to get from point a to point b, without driving themselves.

This also creates more opportunities for potential jobs. Anyone can apply to drive for either Lyft or Uber on their websites.  Both companies push the advantages of driving in your spare time, and everybody loves a little extra cash.
