(Adds Lyft's response to WSJ report)
Feb 12 (Reuters) - Lyft Inc founders are preparing to take near-majority voting control of the ride-hailing company when it goes public this year, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, citing sources familiar with the matter.
The founders, John Zimmer and Logan Green, together own a stake of less than 10 percent in Lyft.
Zimmer and Green, who serve as president and chief executive officer respectively, are working with underwriters and lawyers on a plan to create a class of shares with extra votes that they will hold, the report said.
Lyft is also expected to appoint one of its existing board members as non-executive chairman, the WSJ reported.
A Lyft spokeswoman declined to comment. (Reporting by Sonam Rai in Bengaluru)
