Look at this city page for Boston, it has Lyft Line as Lyft Shared. Did they change the name? I don't see any article describing the name change.

    Lyft Line was re-named Lyft Shared approx 2 weeks ago, (Seattle) but I'm not sure if the change was implemented in all markets.   Same bad product, just a new name.   The tiers are now called:

    Lyft Shared

    Lyft

    Lyft XL

    Lux

    LuxBlack

    Lux Black XL

      After all these years, I always thought Lyft "Line" was stupid.  No one knew what it was.  

      Shouldn't have to explain these days, plus "Line" has a negative connotation as it usually means you are "waiting in line."

      It's about time.

        UberPool.  I guess it makes sense a bit, but couldn't we also think they are a service that takes you to a pool?  or brings you a pool?

    I hadn't heard of this but it does look like it from that page.

    They still use "line" in a lot of verbiage on their website. I am guessing it is just a change to test out if using the word "shared" helps them get more rides or something.
