The new feature will be tested in Orange County, California, July 27-29 and again the following weekend (August 3-5), with the option to expand into major regional cities later this year.
But some Lyft drivers are having very strong reactions to the new feature.
Lyft has promised to keep all parties' participation in the new feature completely their decision.
The tests in the next two coming weekends will determine if Lyft will move forward with the service. Until then, may the Force be with you, drivers and passengers alike.
