I wonder if Uber planned on announcing yesterday, or found out about Lyft Line and wanted to steal the thunder. They've both clearly been working on this product for a long time. Since Uber's service isn't available yet, my guess is that they did a preemptive launch, which fits with Uber's consistently aggressive and impressively well-timed strategy. Lyft can't catch a break. I look forward to the week both companies simultaneously offer a loyalty program.

@mulligan Pretty sure Uber launched quickly to beat Lyft, which had been working on the product since it acquired the team behind Rover. Emily Castor's (Lyft head of Community Relations) tweet says as much - https://twitter.com/emilycastor/...

Excellent addition from @Lyft. This head to head (ish) battle with @Uber is one of the most fascinating tech battles we've seen to date. Love it.

Just took a Lyft Line today. The experience was pretty great. Got to know a person who works a block away from me! The only interesting part was that Lyft Drivers had no idea that this was coming. My Lyft Driver told me that he got an email at 9:20 am this morning telling them about this.

Lyft announces its own carpooling option, Lyft Line, the day after Uber announced UberPool.
