The ridesharing service Lyft is optimistic they'll be operating in the city soon.

The company planned on starting services in Brooklyn and Queens last week but was delayed after the state attorney general asked a judge for a temporary restraining order.

The AG's office says the service is not in compliance with Taxi and Limousine Commission rules, but Lyft says it's been working with the TLC to get approval and that talks have been productive.

Lyft allows passengers to connect with drivers through an app.

The company already agreed to use TLC-licensed drivers in the city.
