Lyft Inc. plans to reduce its physical office space in its biggest US markets as the ride-hailing company adapts to a largely remote workforce.

The San Francisco-based company will sublease a portion of its corporate offices in San Francisco, New York City, Seattle and Nashville, according to a person familiar with the matter, who requested anonymity because the plan is private. About 44% of the combined 615,000 square feet in office space will be rented out to other businesses.
