It’s a good time to be a drunk Lyft rider. The app-based ridesharing company is rolling out a new initiative here in Maryland with more than 50 breweries, wineries and distilleries, offering users a $10 credit for this weekend if they head to those spots, and supplying the venues with “coupons” thereafter to give to patrons who’ve had more than just a taste.
In a developing tradition, Lyft has highlighted its Baltimore riders’ most frequented destinations from the last year. Some of them should come as no surprise.
The drop-off and pick-up cab lanes at BWI are about to get a little more organized, though at a cost to ride-hailing app users.
M&T Bank Stadium, Horseshoe Casino and Power Plant Live! were some of the most popular places to get dropped off if you were a Lyft customer in 2016.
Only last month, ride-hailing apps Uber and Lyft threatened to pull out of Maryland if the state didn’t exempt the companies from having to fingerprint potential drivers during background checks. Today, a state commission gave the companies their wish, but not without creating additional requirements for them to operate here.
