GM said that they'll be supplying Lyft drivers with vehicles like the Bolt by Fall.

“Launching in San Francisco in the summer of 2016 and in Los Angeles by the fall, Express Drive’s California members will have access to vehicles from the largest electric vehicle fleet in ridesharing, including the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV and the extended-range electric 2016 Chevrolet Volt. Express Drive will also launch operations in Denver by the fall of 2016. In San Francisco, Los Angeles and Denver combined, over 130,000 people who applied to become Lyft drivers but didn’t have qualifying cars will now have the opportunity to drive on the platform.”
Great for those of us who want to sit in one before purchasing but we still won't be able to drive one unless you're a Lyft driver.

That makes sense since Chevy reported that the Bolt was designed with ride sharing in mind, it's something you'll see mentioned in the first media drives. I can see Uber being another one, no reason why they shouldn't since they are the biggest player in the market, they'll probably have a better time securing deals than Lyft.

It's been updated, San Fran won't be getting the Bolt before everyone else but they will get it when everyone else does too. This would force buyers to wait longer for their order while Chevy tries to push out the Lyft units...
