Lyft, the ridesharing service with the pink mustaches on cars, appears to be sniffing out the Omaha and Kansas City markets.

Facebook and Craiglist ads for drivers have popped up in recent weeks and now Lyft employees are working out of Think Big Coworking in Kansas City.

Lyft officials so far are mum on the markets, saying they are only “exploring” Kansas City, and testing ads in Omaha and 20 other cities where Lyft isn’t operating but interested in exploring.

Katie Dally, who handles public relations for Lyft, said she didn’t have any more details or launch plans to share, but would update Silicon Prairie News on the progress.

The news comes on the heels of an Omaha Uber Twitter account appearing earlier this month. Uber has not officially announced plans for Omaha.

We’ll keep our eyes on the development of these two tech transportation competitors.
