Look out, Austin. Lyft is the official ridesharing partner of SXSW. Getting around SXSW has never been easier.
We pulled out all the stops to make Lyft the ultimate SXSW transportation option. Our designated pickup and drop-off zones (see map below) will be the key to finding your driver in the sea of festivalgoers. Plus, new users who sign up for Lyft with code SXSW2015 will get $5 off their first 10 rides.*
Believe in Magic
We’ve partnered with PayPal to bring an unforgettable transportation experience to Austin: Magic Mode. Request a ride in Magic Mode on your iOS device for a chance to get picked up in a Ferrari F430 Spider, 1963 Bentley, Tesla Model S, or another noteworthy ride from the Magic Mode garage. Magic Mode will be available Friday, 3/13, to Sunday, 3/15, from 2 - 10 p.m. Each Magic Mode car will be playing a specially-curated Pandora radio station created for that unique ride experience. Magic Mode rides are excluded from Prime Time. Starting today, pay for your Lyft ride with One TouchⓇ with PayPalⓇ, powered by Braintree, on iOS devices. If you pay with your PayPal account, you get $5 off your first Magic Mode ride.
Share the Ride
Just for SXSW, we’re launching Lyft Line in Austin. When you use Lyft Line, you save money by sharing the ride with others going the same way. We’ve set a $10 price cap on all Lyft Line rides in Austin’s Drive Happy District as marked on the map. Lyft Line will only be available in Austin for a limited time, so don’t miss out!
Check out Lyft CEO Logan Green’s keynote on Monday, March 16, to learn more about our company’s ambitious beginnings and where Lyft is headed.
So dust off your cowboy boots, grab your SXSW badge, and we’ll see you on the street. For live updates on all things Lyft throughout the festival, follow @Lyft on Twitter.
