Lyft API Closing Down

May 01, 2019

Lyft announced to developers on April 16th, 2019, that their API is no longer open to the general public. Their notice states the API closure begins on April 16th and will continue through to May 30th. For developers who already have API access, they are required to apply for approval to maintain their access to the Lyft APIs.

How does this affect Primetime?

We have applied to Lyft to maintain our access to the Lyft API. So far we have received no response. At this time, we can only assume we will not be getting approval and will lose access to the Lyft APIs by the end of May.

For the time being, Primetime is continuing to work. We have currently disabled the multiple month premium membership In-App-Purchase options. The one month option is still available for users who want to use Primetime until we lose access to the Lyft API.

We will continue to post updates on the blog as this develops.
