Today, we’re thrilled to announce a national partnership with Verizon Wireless.
This alliance was built with drivers and passengers in mind. With Verizon’s support, we will offer more valuable perks to drivers while continuing to grow the number of passengers who rely on Lyft for their everyday rides.
Starting next week, Lyft drivers on the Verizon Network can receive discounts on their monthly bill, family plans, and accessories through Accelerate, Lyft’s premier driver rewards program.
In addition, Verizon will now pre-load the Lyft app onto select Verizon Android devices, making it easier than ever to find a welcoming, affordable ride, whenever and wherever you need one.
Verizon is firmly dedicated to leveraging advanced technology to power a fast, reliable network for consumers across the country. Lyft and Verizon share the vision of a more efficient, connected future, where a safe ride and reliable technology is available to everyone at their fingertips.
“Lyft is a pioneer in the ridesharing industry and broader sharing economy, using innovative mobile technology to make transportation more efficient and affordable,” said Russ Preite, region president for Verizon Wireless. “Lyft and Verizon Wireless have a shared commitment to delivering convenient and reliable experiences to customers, no matter where they are. This partnership is a natural fit that will not only save customers time and money, but also enhance the Lyft ride experience for both passengers and drivers.”
Stay tuned, because today is just the beginning. We will continue to work closely with Verizon on initiatives that benefit Lyft’s drivers and passengers in the weeks and months to come.
