Get ready, Atlanta: we’re turning up the heat on providing safe, reliable and affordable rides to get you to your nearest MARTA station. Starting this week, we’re joining forces with the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) to make commuting around Atlanta even easier and more affordable. New Lyft passengers can download the Lyft app and use the code GOMARTA for 50% off each of their first 10 Lyft rides:
Partnering with transit agencies like MARTA is a core part of our vision to build a sustainable transportation network. By helping fill the first and last miles between a passenger’s home and a MARTA station, we’re making it easier than ever to ride transit. We believe that when transit is within reach of everyone, our cities are more liveable, connected, and prosperous.
“MARTA is committed to providing first and last mile connectivity for our customers, and our partnership with Lyft makes this possible,” said Keith T. Parker, MARTA GM/CEO. “This dynamic, ridesharing promotion allows us to give our customers more transit options as they go about their daily lives.”
MARTA joins a growing list of public agencies who recognize the important role Lyft plays in growing ridership and expanding access to public transportation.
“We're excited to work together with MARTA to encourage Atlanta residents to use Lyft as a first and last mile connection to transit,” said Sam Bond, Lyft Atlanta General Manager. “We view this partnership as a first step to a much broader collaboration to improve mobility for all of Atlanta, and look forward to continuing our work to make this vision a reality.”
