Seven days ago, we matched MUNI by lowering Lyft Line prices to $2.25 for a limited time. And your response was amazing. So, instead of letting the Drive Happy District disappear, we’re keeping low prices around longer! Starting tonight, we’re setting a $5 price cap on all Lyft Line rides in the Drive Happy District, so you never pay more than $5.
Today, we’re thrilled to share that Lyft is the first transportation partner to team up with Google to show Now cards from the Google app. Whether you’re traveling to another city or heading home from a night out, you’ll get helpful Now cards — one tap and you’re taken directly to the Lyft app to request a ride.
This year, we’re upping the ante like never before. New look, new feel, even a new shade of magenta. Our goal is to make every ride welcoming, affordable, and memorable — and we’re just getting started. Our new marketing efforts put it best: we’re all about driving you happy and making sure you enjoy the ride.
Heading into tax season, Lyft has partnered with Intuit, the creators of everyone’s favorite tax-filing software. Through the partnership, Lyft drivers will get QuickBooks Self-Employed for free, and TurboTax Online at a largely discounted rate.
New to Lyft? Welcome to the community! There’s never been a better time to join: We’re celebrating the new year with an all-new Lyft. New partnerships, new experiences, and more to make every Lyft ride more memorable and delightful than ever before. Beneath all that’s new and exciting, though, remains the foundation of what we believe what a great ride should be. Here are a few of the pillars that guide us:
On December 5th, drivers in Denver partnered with Project Angel Heart to deliver meal kits to residents living with life-threatening illnesses. Serving over one-thousand meals a week, Project Angel Heart aims to provide ill Colorado residents with a week’s worth of homemade and nutritious meals.
As the holidays continue, so has the spirit of giving. This week, Lyft drivers in Austin gathered to deliver meals to those in need. They collaborated with Meals on Wheels And More, an organization that facilitates food delivery to homebound seniors, who often have limited financial support and are unable to prepare meals on their own.
In preparation for tonight, Lyft drivers across the country are stocking their cars with water, snacks, and party-till-you-drop playlists to help you ring in 2015. No matter how you’re planning to celebrate, we’re proud to be a part of it. And, on busy nights like New Year’s Eve, it’s important to us that you can count on a safe, reliable Lyft ride.
This New Year’s Eve, we’re partnering with Mothers Against Drunk Driving to make getting a safe ride easier than ever.
Ah, 2014. The year of the spider dog, the Oscar selfie, and the Taco Bell breakfast. The year we dumped ice water on ourselves and T. Swift shook it off. The year that Frozen song was always either on your TV, or in your head.
This holiday, we’re asking our community to add a special someone to their holiday card list. Addie Fausset is six years old, likes pink and pandas, and lives in Fountain Green, Utah. Due to a chronic illness, this Christmas may be her last. Her family’s wish? To give Addie “a lifetime of Christmas cards.”
More than one million workers commute into Manhattan every day. What if we could connect all those workers with other passengers traveling in the same direction? Connecting commuters presents a cost-effective alternative that has potential to relieve congestion, drastically reduce travel times and make the commute more enjoyable.
