Lyft has booked InSight PA for Washington representation on a range of transportation issues.

Insight is the firm formed in December by Podesta and BGR alums to provide "purpose-driven advocacy and lobbying for companies, nonprofits and causes."

Oscar Ramirez, and Dana Thompson, veterans of Tony Podesta's firm, handle the Lyft effort.

Lyft spent $630K for lobbying in 2017 in areas such as ride-sharing, self-driving cars, commuter tax breaks, future of work and smart cities.

Before cutting ties, Podesta took a $150K chunk of those outlays, while WPP's Glover Park Group accounted for a $100K piece of the business.

Uber Technologies, Lyft's archrival, shelled out $1.9M in 2017 lobbying fees to a collection of firms including The Doerrer Group, Franklin Square Group, Ballard Partners, Federal Hill Group and Invariant.
