The ride-sharing company Lyft is ramping up its D.C. presence. The San Francisco-based startup hired Jochum Shore & Trossevin and TwinLogic Strategies to lobby for the “removal of barriers and anticompetitive activities that inhibit ride sharing,” according to the lobbying registration forms. Lyft and its rival Uber have encountered legal obstacles in multiple cities. A spokesperson for Lyft said that the company is working to educate policymakers at the federal, state, and city level on the community benefits of peer-to-peer transportation.
