Lyft is now in 10 cities in the US with simultaneous launches in Indianapolis, St. Paul, Minn., and Atlanta on Thursday.

It's the first time the quirky car-sharing company has launched in three cities at once, which may indicate that it's ramping up its expansion.

Lyft's more luxurious competitor UberX, a branch of the Uber black-car service, is in 10 cities across the US and overseas. Overall, Uber's services are in more than 40 cities internationally, and began testing this week in Bangalore, India, Cape Town, South Africa, and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
