Lyft scooters are officially live in Nashville. This marks our first scooter launch in the South as we work closely and collaboratively with cities before we launch our mobility solutions.
This summer, we mapped out our vision for how Lyft Bikes & Scooters will reduce the number of vehicle miles traveled, increase public transportation trips and provide equitable transportation solutions. In Nashville, we have a trio of partnerships to announce as our scooters launch on your streets.
We’re partnering with Walk Bike Nashville, an organization working to build a more walkable, bikeable, and livable Nashville, as part of our commitment to safer streets and support their push for protected bike lanes in downtown and throughout Nashville.
Additionally, we’ll partner with The Equity Group, who will be working with the 200 Man Stand, an organization that works to empower residents of public housing, and the Interdenominational Ministers Fellowship, a group of faith leaders who advance social justice issues — all of which will help local low-income residents sign up for our $5/month community pass.
Providing more mobility options to communities that have historically been underserved is a key tenet for our bikes and scooters platform and we’re thrilled to partner with these organizations.
Now, when you open up the Lyft app you’ll have the choice between scooting around or rideshare. Most of the time, scooting will be better suited for short trips or when you want to beat some of that rush hour traffic. If it’s raining, that’s when rideshare will be your better option. But, no matter what situation you’re in, Lyft will be there to help you get around town.
