Just a few miles inland from the Space Coast, another innovation of technology and transportation is taking flight — Lyft is now live in Orlando!
Now both visitors and locals have a new safe, reliable transportation option — one that also lets them connect with a friendly Orlandoan, sit in the front seat, and enjoy the ride. With Lyft, Orlando’s 59 million annual tourists and two million metropolitan residents can now connect to a friendly ride with their smartphones, and for 20-30% less than the cost of a cab.
Some of the founding drivers in Orlando include a marine animal caretaker, prescription glasses-maker and pre-med student — and you can spot them by the furry pink mustaches on the front of their cars. They’re also backed by $1 million commercial liability insurance policy and have undergone Lyft’s rigorous background and DMV driving record checks.
Whether you’re bound south to Kissimmee, north to Sanford, east to UCF, west to Disneyworld, or anywhere in between, you can now catch a Lyft! To celebrate the launch, all new users in Orlando are granted two weeks of free rides when they download the app.
Orlando, where will Lyft take you?
