Jul 2, 2018

CLEVELAND -- On July 4th only, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) and Lyft, the fastest growing rideshare company in the U.S., are partnering to help you attend the many Independence Day celebrations in the region.

Enjoy a 10% discount (up to $5 per ride) when you use Lyft to take you to and from any of RTA’s Red Line stations. Rides must be scheduled within a ½ mile of any Red Line Station. Up to two rides per customer.

“Lyft is thrilled to partner with the RTA to provide affordable and reliable rides throughout Greater Cleveland, helping passengers get around on the 4th of July," said Jay Dumaswala, Market Manager of Lyft Cleveland. "This way, they can focus on celebrating with family and friends, and we'll provide a responsible ride home afterwards.”

Joe Calabrese, RTA CEO and General Manager said, “It is private/public partnerships such as these that make both RTA and Lyft even more convenient and affordable to customers in the region. Together, we’re making it easier to give the public a safe ride, while providing significant cost savings to our customers.”

If you’re attending any of Downtown events, including Light up the Lake in the Flats East Bank, sponsored by the Downtown Cleveland Alliance, RTA makes it easy to get you there.
