I think that anyone who refers to User/Lyft as ridesharing (quote above the article"[Editor's note: for further information about the ridesharing business model of Uber and Lyft ..." is being intellectually lazy or dishonest.
The main article refers to them correctly as taxicabs.
And, fwiw, we've had a real ride-sharing board at our local Uni forever. Plenty of students, and some non-students, do actually share rides (generally long distance, going home for holidays, etc) and it looks nothing like Uber.
We're all agreed, I think, Uber sucks and is not "sharing."
