People living in the newest cities in Lyft’s expansion will be able to get rides for free for the first two weeks. Cities added the the ride-sharing service’s territory include Albuquerque, Kansas City, Memphis, Oklahoma City and more. This expansion puts the service’s total number of cities to 60, reports The Los Angeles Times.

Lyft now offers its services in more U.S. cities than what its rival Uber does. However, Uber serves more cities across the world than its rival ride-sharing service. This may not be the case in the next few months as Lyft plans to increase its offerings to international areas, NBC News notes.

Lyft has also reduced its prices in all areas by 10%. The company plans to give drivers extra bonuses to compensate for the price drop and says that it won’t be permanent, reports L.A. Times.
