12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --A new economic survey released today by Lyft reports the local Jacksonville economy will see an extra $5 million in 2016 thanks to the availability of Lyft's affordable, convenient rides. Conducted by the Land Econ Group, the study also showed passengers in Jacksonville will save $1.4 million in travel time value and over 33,000 travel hours this year alone because of Lyft. "Based on survey results from tens of thousands of Lyft users, we found that Lyft creates a significant positive economic impact in each of the twenty metro regions we have studied," said Bill Lee, Senior Partner at Land Econ Group. "Passengers have responded to the significant time savings and enhanced mobility Lyft provides by visiting local businesses more often, staying out longer, and exploring new areas of their city that are otherwise difficult to reach." The national survey examined over 20 Lyft markets across the country, including Jacksonville. In 2016, local economies will see over $750 million in additional spending due to the availability of Lyft. Access to Lyft also meant that passengers saved over $500 million and 26 million travel hours compared to alternative transportation modes. "It's exciting to see the economic and social benefits of Lyft quantified," said Jaime Raczka, Lyft's General Manager of Early Stage Markets. "Lyft is clearly driving economic growth and encouraging local spending in Jacksonville, and we look forward to continuing our hard work to ensure this growth continues." In Jacksonville, the study also found: 88% of passengers are more likely to avoid drinking while intoxicated because of Lyft 85% of Lyft drivers have given a ride to a neighbor before 37% of Lyft drivers are 50+, the highest among the 20 cities surveyed 46% of passengers use their personal vehicle less because of Lyft 22% of rides start in underserved areas Additional information on Lyft's 2017 Economic Impact Survey can be found here .
