Hail the ‘O.G.’ Uber and Lyft drivers in line to cash in on the highly anticipated IPOs

At Lyft Inc., they were called “the O.G.”

This iteration of an original gang comprised the first 50 or so drivers who took a chance on what may then have sounded like a crazy concept.

Now, as Lyft and rival Uber Technologies Inc. gear up for the transition from startup to public company, both are considering giving some of their loyal drivers a chance to buy stock in their initial public offerings, the Wall Street Journal has reported.

Lyft filed its prospectus for an initial public offering on Friday. Both companies have revealed that they plan to go public this year.
