Lyft is planning on opening a regional headquarters in Virginia, employing more than 30 people, according to a release from the Virginia governor’s office.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced the transportation network company will invest $350,000 to establish a Mid-Atlantic headquarters in Crystal City, Virginia, that will employ 35 people. McAuliffe met with the company in San Francisco during his March 2016 Marketing Mission.
“Arlington County has become a hub for the thriving technology sector, and Lyft will be a strong addition to our corporate roster,” the governor said. “Attracting companies that represent this kind of high-tech entrepreneurship is vital to our efforts to diversify and build a new Virginia economy, and today is a big win for the Commonwealth.”
Lyft is currently available in more than 200 U.S. cities, including many in Virginia. The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Arlington County to secure the project for Virginia.
