The war of words between Lyft and Uber continues to escalate. Following allegations that its drivers and employees were regularly hailing and canceling rides that they booked on its competitor’s service, Uber issued a statement claiming Lyft is guilty of the same actions. Furthermore, Uber claims these actions were taken after Lyft’s investors urged Uber to buy the company. Yesterday Lyft alleged that it had identified what it believed to be 177 Uber employees who had canceled more than 5,000 rides in an effort to disrupt the operations of its ride-sharing service. Furthermore, Lyft reported many more instances in which Uber employees or drivers would book short rides in an attempt to recruit its drivers to the other side.
