Ride-sharing app "Lyft" hosts launch event in Milwaukee Thursday

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- The ride-sharing smartphone app "Lyft" will host a launch event in Milwaukee on Thursday, April 10th.

Lyft is known for its pink mustachioed transportation.

Lyft will compete with Uber -- a similar service that recently rolled out in Milwaukee.

Not everyone is happy with these new transportation services.

The services have seen opposition from taxi companies -- and there have been efforts to restrict them by some city officials.
