Lyft and SeatGeek Make It Easier to Get To and From Live Events

Ever arrived at a sporting event or concert on time, only to miss the first half because you couldn’t find the entrance to get to your seat? Or perhaps you left a live event early to save time getting home, only to walk outside and realize you need to go around the entire stadium to get to your ride? You aren’t alone, and that’s why this fall SeatGeek and Lyft are teaming up to make it easier than ever for fans to use Lyft to attend live events.

Soon fans attending games, concerts, and other events will be dropped off closer to their seats than ever before,  saving up to 30 minutes in walking time at large stadium venues. Fans who request a Lyft ride through the SeatGeek app will automatically have their seat location featured in the Lyft app, ensuring the driver drops them off as close to their seat as possible.  

Next season, fans visiting Providence Park, home to the Portland Timbers of Major League Soccer, will be able to experience Lyft within the SeatGeek app. Timbers fans attending games via the SeatGeek app will automatically be dropped off at the best gate for their seats when taking a Lyft, saving them crucial time getting around the stadium.

“Many music and sports fans are already taking a Lyft to watch their favorite entertainer play and their favorite athlete score the game winning goal, “ said Lyft’s Amy Fox, Head of Business Development and Strategic Partnerships. “Lyft teaming up with SeatGeek will make those fans' game-day experiences even better.”
