Lyft was founded with the mission to effect positive change for the future of our cities. As part of that commitment, we’re passionate about reducing personal car ownership, getting more people to share rides, and partnering with transit. We’re thrilled to bring that reality to life in South Florida through teaming up with Brightline, the new and only privately owned, operated and maintained express inter-city passenger rail service in the U.S., as its exclusive rideshare partner.
As the exclusive rideshare partner, Lyft will be integrated with Brightline, including wayfinding communications around the stations, designated pick-up and drop off lounge areas at the Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach stations, and an area for Lyft drivers to wait while awaiting ride requests. In the coming weeks, Lyft will also be integrated into the Brightline mobile app, enabling passengers to see their driver’s ETA and the estimated fare of their ride before requesting the ride in the Lyft app.
“We believe that South Floridians need a spectrum of transportation options - from public transit to rideshare and more,” said Sam Cohen, Florida General Manager for Lyft. “With the addition of Brightline and this tremendous partnership, passengers will be able to better move between major cities in our region and we’re able to continue pursuing our goals to reduce personal car ownership and single occupancy vehicles, making Florida more liveable for all.”
