Opening Day at Comerica Park is the start of one season (Tigers baseball) and the end of another (winter, good riddance). If you haven’t experienced it before, it’s like the all of metro Detroit comes out of hibernation in celebration of good months ahead and of course, to cheer on a team that’s given our city something to believe in since 1901.
Our friends at Wallside Windows have given us all something else to cheer about on Opening Day, and that’s half off rides home from the game and surrounding festivities. As part of their Safe Ride with Wallside program, all you have to do is enter the promo code WALLSIDE into your Lyft app — or follow the link below — and you’ll get half off your ride (up to $15) between the hours of 1 PM and 8 PM on Friday.
To make sure your Opening Day is not only a safe one, but an enjoyable one, consider these tips from veterans in our driver community:
- Head south of the stadium to find a good pickup spot. As you can see below, the streets around Comerica will be closed off to traffic, so you’ll need to walk a couple blocks before calling for a Lyft ride.
- Don’t hesitate to call your driver. It’s going to be extremely crowded on Friday, so anything you can do to help your driver find you is appreciated!
- Get to know your driver on a first-name basis. With so many people requesting a Lyft ride in close proximity, make sure you are getting in the right vehicle by confirming your respective names. While you’re at it, feel free to start a conversation about how Michael Fulmer obliterated the Red Sox from the first pitch.
Have a great Opening Day and make sure to send a note of thanks to @wallside_window. We’ll see you in the stands!
