This year, Lyft is your ticket to staying weird and staying safe all SXSW-long. From our roving Weird Squads to our partnerships with SXSW and Budweiser, we went all out so you can too.
As the official ridesharing partner of SXSW, Lyft is the easiest and most affordable way around Austin. Not only do we get you closer to the festival than anyone else, we’ve made Lyft Lines 25% less than original Lyft in our special discount zone. And we’ve teamed up with our friends at Budweiser to make sure everyone has a safe ride home, every time.
Our SXSW lineup:
Get Weird. On Demand.
Just when you thought Austin couldn’t get any weirder… Introducing Weird Mode to the Lyft app. It’s weirdness, delivered at the tap of a button. Turn up the weirdness wherever you are, whether it’s a crowded bar or long line. Access Weird Mode from Fri 3/11 - Sun 3/13, 4 PM - 9 PM Local Time.
Your Safe Ride Home
We want to make sure you ride safe at SXSW, so we’re giving away codes, good for $10 in ride credit, courtesy of Budweiser. Look for Lyft x Budweiser at the festival to get your code.
Meet Our Street Team
Look for our uniformed street squad throughout Austin — they’ll be treating passersby to free Lyft credits too, so make sure you say hi.
Easy Pickups & Drop-Offs
Forget crowded curbsides and squinting to find your driver. Our designated pickup and drop-off zones make riding a breeze.
