Today, we’re excited to announce our partnership with the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association (NIADA) to help improve the customer experience at dealerships, to provide a new way for drivers to get on the road, and to help auto dealers increase their sales through referral opportunities.
Connecting Auto Dealers with our Driver Network
Through our collaboration with NIADA, we’re helping connect auto dealers with Lyft drivers who need cars, and we’re rewarding dealerships with bonuses for referring new drivers. Auto dealers can now sign up to become Lyft referral partners to earn bonuses every time they refer a new driver. It’s an innovative way for dealers to increase sales while helping grow the Lyft community.
Participating NIADA members will also allow drivers to apply their earnings toward their monthly vehicle payments — a faster (and more affordable) route to getting a new car.
Empowering Dealerships to Provide a Better Customer Experience
We’re also helping NIADA dealers improve their customer service experience with Lyft Concierge, which lets dealers request rides on behalf of customers. It’s an easy, reliable, and affordable way to help customers get to work, home, or their next errand while their car is being serviced.
Supporting Small Businesses
This is just another way that Lyft supports small business owners, identifying unique solutions that are tailored to the needs of small businesses like NIADA dealerships across the country.
