Nobody wants Lyft

Dial-a-ride app maker Lyft is looking for a buyer, but no one's interested.

This according to The New York Times, which cited multiple sources in reporting that Apple, Google, Amazon, GM, Didi Chuxing, and even Uber have been approached by Lyft, all without any success.

Though the Times notes that Lyft is sitting on more than $1bn and won't be in danger of going bust any time soon, the news that none of the big players in the self-driving car world, nor any rival companies, were interested in buying Lyft should cast some doubt on the company's long-term prospects. ®
