Today, Lyft launches in Boston, making it the first Lyft community on the East Coast. Beginning this morning, Boston residents will be able to spot the pink mustache from Fenway to Harvard Square. Last night, the first Lyft community members celebrated today’s Friends and Family launch, with full service for all users opening tomorrow, Saturday, June 1 at 9am.
Why Boston? The focus on community, from the college campuses to Red Sox Nation, make it the perfect place to launch Lyft on the East Coast. Lyft’s first community drivers in Boston are a talented bunch, including the lead singer of a rock band, a stand-up comedian and a pastry chef. Lyft is available in Boston seven days a week, starting at 7am on weekdays and 9am on weekends, and until 3am on Friday and Saturday nights.
