Lyft to open regional headquarters in Arlington
Ride-sharing company Lyft is opening a mid-Atlantic regional headquarters in Arlington County.
The San Francisco company’s $350,000 investment will create 32 new jobs to provide driver support and marketing for the company.
“Lyft is thrilled to open our new office in the emerging innovation center of Crystal City,” Lyft General Manager Steve Taylor said in a statement. “… Building a strong presence in the D.C. area is crucial to Lyft's growth, and we look forward to strengthening our ties to this area for years to come.”
The headquarters, at 2011 Crystal City Drive, currently has about 15 employees. The full build out should be completed in December.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe met with Lyft officials during a marketing mission in March.
“Today’s announcement is another strong testament to Virginia’s competitiveness for an innovative and recognizable brand like Lyft to select the commonwealth for its mid-Atlantic regional headquarters,” McAuliffe said in a statement.
