Lyft announced today, Monday, February 3, 2014 they have switched Long Beach over to the Orange County market.

There are several drivers that live in Long Beach that will not no longer be able to work in our own hometown and lose all the time we spent on growing the LB Lyft community to OC drivers. We cannot afford to switch to the OC market because they do not receive enough hours weekly and it is nearly impossible to slide-in. Lyft is the main source of income for many of us and we cannot survive in Orange County and do not wish to drive to LA proper every time we work.

Not only will this change affect drivers, but Long Beach residents will be very unhappy. As a native Long Beachian, I know for a fact that Long Beach residents despise being mistaken as part of Orange County and not Los Angeles. So much to the extent that most Long Beach residents will probably stop using the service once they know that they're part of the Orange County market.

We waited a long time to have Long Beach as a part of our community and now is being taken away, suddenly with no warning, after we built up this market. It is unjust to switch it to another market after it being decided 3 months ago that it was part of LA.

Please sign this petition to return Long Beach back to the Lyft LA market.
