Philadelphia: 10 Tips for the Best Summer Ever

Philadelphia: 10 Tips for the Best Summer Ever

From saving up for that dream vacation to just connecting with your city, the reasons you choose to drive and ride with Lyft are as unique as you are. We’re celebrating drivers and passengers from the Lyft community by sharing their reasons for choosing Lyft. Head to to see more stories, and to share your own.

According to Tari, every Lyft passenger who steps into her ‘08 Prius comes with  a story. As a Lyft driver in Philadelphia, Tari’s passengers span from college students to young professionals, from boxers to artists — a slice of everything Philadelphia has to offer.

Tari started driving with Lyft to earn extra money, but driving became a passion because of the one-of-a-kind interactions she’s had with passengers along the way. One of her most memorable rides came in the form of a reunion with a high school classmate. They had been in musicals together, and spent the ride blasting music and reminiscing in a McDonald's drive thru until the early morning hours.

To have a summer as full of stories as Tari’s Lyft rides, look no further than her top ten tips for having a magical Philly summer.
