Good news Duluth: You can finally get a Lyft home

Uber hasn't set a launch date for the North Shore yet.

The wait is over, Duluth.

Lyft announced Thursday people can start requesting rides in Duluth now, which is right on schedule after the city last month approved ride-share companies like Lyft and Uber to begin operating in the city as early as April 27.

Noah Hobbs, the city council member who pushed for the ordinance to allow ride-share companies, tweeted the good news.

And others were pretty excited about it too.

All you have to do to take a Lyft is download the app and request a ride. You can see the company's coverage area online here, which includes cities like Hermantown, Proctor, Cloquet, Lakewood and Fredenberg.

It's not clear when Uber will start operating in Duluth, with the company telling GoMN it hasn't launched service yet, but hopes to have more information soon.
