Lyft Elevates Corporate Travel Solutions Through Partnership with American Express Global Business Travel

As we continue to grow our corporate travel efforts and offerings, we’re excited to elevate our offering through a new partnership with American Express Global Business Travel (GBT), a leading global travel management company. Together, we’re providing an innovative business travel solution that integrates Lyft’s ridesharing platform with GBT’s extensive offerings in booking, travel assistance, management, and analysis and reporting.

A First-of-its-Kind Integrated Solution

Lyft and GBT will provide a powerful, seamless way for corporate travel managers and administrators to transform their ground transportation programs. Drawing on shared data utilized by the platform, corporate clients can count on the integrated solution to provide the best ground transportation options — including Lyft ridesharing — for cost and convenience.

Key benefits include:

  • Cost savings: Minimize spend by offering ground transportation alternatives

  • Reporting: Gain new insights into traveler trends with a more holistic picture of a traveler’s end-to-end trip experience

  • Flexible booking: Access flexible options for booking ridesharing via the Lyft app, and later in 2018 via the Amex GBT Mobile app

Partnering with Leading Travel Organizations

Through our Channel Partner program, we enable businesses to leverage the growing ridesharing and ground transportation market to more deeply engage with clients, access new and innovative products, grow revenue, and accelerate sales. As we continue to expand our partnership network with travel management organizations, we’re excited to share that Lyft now partners with four of the top five TMCs in the country. Some of Lyft’s TMC channel partners include:

  • Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT)

  • Flight Centre Travel Group, USA

  • Hogg Robinson Group (HRG)

  • World Travel Inc

  • Short’s Travel Management

These organizations ensure businesses travelers can count on Lyft for their ground transportation needs, with cost and time savings, simplified planning, and more effective reporting. To learn more about our channel program, visit our website.
