Where will you tell your grandchildren you were during the great carpooling app wars of 2015? Hot on the heels of Uber’s recent announcement that riders can use UberPool to get anywhere in Manhattan below 96th St for under $10, mustachioed competitor Lyft has announced they’ll be running the same limited time deal, except for only $5.
