Lyft launched a new program that allows riders to combine rides with other riders and thus receive a discount on their ride.
As of February, Lyft’s Shared Saver program, similar to Uber’s Pool, lets riders browse the app and find the nearest vehicle that can take riders either to or near their desired destination.
The app provides walking directions and lists the time it will take to walk to the driver’s location where a vehicle may already be toting passengers to other locations. The ride may not take you exactly to your desired destination, but may drop you off a few blocks away. The app also will list the price for either Shared or Shared Saver fares, the number of available spaces in the vehicle and the approximate arrival time to your destination.
Lyft also offers a Shuttle service in Chicago and San Francisco, more of a commuter-based program providing rides into and out of major business areas.
United Airlines announces a number of new routes.
Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
