Lyft is racing to be the first ride-hailing app to sell shares on the U.S. stock market.
And on Monday it will take its pitch on the road to investors in hopes of raising as much as $2 billion.
Looming over Lyft's initial public offering: larger rival Uber's planned IPO a month later.
But unlike Uber - which has branched into food delivery and freight hauling and is in countries across the globe - Lyft is telling investors its platform is a focused bet on the the core business of ride-hailing in the United States.
The ride-hailing industry, which touted $36.5 billion in sales globally in 2017, is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years, but is fraught with questions about the future of automated driving, regulatory pushback and legal challenges over drivers' pay and benefits.
Lyft hopes its IPO will value the company at $20 billion. Uber is aiming higher, to $120 billion.
Neither company is yet profitable.
