Free Ridesharing Deal Continuing in Omaha, Lincoln

The ridesharing company Lyft says it will continue offering free rides in Omaha and Lincoln.

Last month the Nebraska Public Service Commission issued letters to Lyft and its competitor Uber that they'd need the commission's permission to offer services in Nebraska. The two San Francisco companies use smartphone applications to link motorists and people who would pay for rides.

Lyft avoided immediate commission action by offering free rides as part of its introductory offer in the state. Lyft spokeswoman Paige Thelen says Lyft hasn't yet set a date for ending the offer, which was scheduled to end Thursday.
