EDISON - The ride-sharing company Lyft has expanded its operation to now cover all of New Jersey.

Users can download the Lyft app on their smartphone to request a private or shared ride to their destination. The driver is automatically paid through the app.

Previously, the service was only available in select cities in the Garden State, including Trenton, Newark and Atlantic City.

Lyft’s competitor, Uber, has been available across New Jersey for a while.
