http://techcrunch.com – If you’ve tried using on-demand ride-sharing service Lyft in San Francisco recently, you’ve probably had the experience of opening the app only to find that there are no drivers available, or at least none nearby. Made available to the public just two months ago, it’s become insanely popular — so popular you can barely catch a ride anymore. Well, it’s trying to solve that problem through a number of initiatives, including an increase in driver supply, as well as a few updates to the service that will reduce the number of new users and cancellations that it sees.
