Baseball and Lyft go together like peanuts and Cracker Jack. Every Major League Baseball game brings fans together from near and far to build an ever-growing community of friends rooting for the home team. This shared commitment to connecting people is why we’re so excited to announce that starting today, Lyft is the official rideshare partner of MLB.com.
More than 74 million baseball fans now have a reliable option to leave their cars at home, make safe driving choices, reduce congestion and share rides to and from their favorite ballparks across the country with Lyft. By exclusively partnering with the most advanced and successful digital media and technology company in sports, Lyft now provides MLB fans nationwide unprecedented access to affordable, safe and friendly rides through the 2014 Postseason, capped by the 110th World Series, and the entire 2015 MLB season.
New and existing passengers will receive varied, creative promotions across MLB’s industry-leading web and mobile platforms – including ongoing free ride giveaways, special promotions for the playoffs this October, sweepstakes opportunities and more across all clubs' websites and social media sites. Partnering with MLB.com also gives us the opportunity to cement Lyft’s position as the fastest-growing rideshare company in the industry – the MLB.com At Bat mobile app, the highest-grossing sports app ever, is accessed on average more than six million times every day.
“Our partnership with Lyft is an exciting development that will bring a great technology experience and a best-in-class transportation option for fans this Postseason and every game next year,” said Noah Garden, EVP, Revenue, MLB.com.
No matter which club fans root for this Postseason, or how many ballparks they’ll visit in 2015, the all-star team of Lyft and MLB.com will drive fans there and home again.
