As a part of our City Works initiative — our commitment to achieve maximum positive impact on our cities — we’ll be launching Green Mode in PDX today at 11 AM.
Green Mode will let Portland riders request a hybrid or electric vehicle for their journey. While all Lyft rides are carbon neutral, we’re thrilled to offer this new way for Portlanders to select cleaner transportation. Green Mode will be available as a ride option from today onward in the City of Portland proper, and will cost the same as a Standard Lyft ride.
In addition, we'll be introducing hundreds of hybrid vehicles to Portland through our Express Drive partners later this year. Express Drive connects drivers to rental vehicles with standard maintenance and insurance coverage. With this expansion, more than 20% of all Lyft rides in Portland will be in hybrid and electric vehicles.
We’re dedicated to building on our promise to offer transportation options that are better for the environment, and we’re excited to be at the forefront of sustainable mobility as we work to make our cities more livable.
