Meet the ‘O.G.’ Uber and Lyft drivers who could cash in on the IPOs

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

They were the first 50 or so drivers who took a chance on what then 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 and long-serving drivers a chance to own shares minted in their initial public offerings, the Wall Street Journal has reported.

Lyft LYFT, +0.00% on Wednesday increased the number of shares in its IPO and raised the expected range to $70 to $72 a share.
