Nothing is more expensive and possibly dangerous than parking your car on a lot at an airport or train station. Many either charge an outrageous fee or are left unprotected that it could get broken into at any time. If you are an Amtrak user, Lyft may be able to solve that problem.
Lyft is partnering with Amtrak to get people to and from the train station in an effort called first-and-last mile service, according to The Verge. You can now book a ride through the Amtrak app. If you are new to Lyft, use the promo code “AMTRAKLYFT” and you will receive $5 discounts on the first four rides. Lyft usually offers that to first time users on their own app.
“We’re looking forward to working with Amtrak. As a fixture of American travel, Amtrak makes it simple and convenient for passengers, something Lyft feels passionately about as well,” David Baga, Lyft’s chief business officer, said in a statement. “Both companies have a long-standing commitment to supporting communities we serve and we’re excited to grow together.”
Lyft is taking full advantage of the beleaguered Uber that has been mired in controversy for the last year now. Without a CEO and trying to save face, Lyft had partnered with Disney to offer ‘Minnie Van” service at Walt Disney World and Taco Bell for those late night runs.
