Lyft reports July monthly rideshare rides were up 78% compared to April.

"Lyft's second quarter results reflect an operating environment that was not only challenging for our core ridesharing business, but also for our valued riders and drivers and the communities we serve. Our performance reinforces our belief that Lyft is taking on the critical work necessary to emerge from the crisis as a stronger company," adds Green.
