Both Uber and Lyft are working on food delivery programs, as well as many other services to offer rides for things like doctor visits. This means that there are plenty of ridesharing vehicles around.
While we recognize the benefit of this, we also know that Uber and Lyft drivers don’t necessarily have training to drive passengers around. They are regular people using their personal vehicles.
