TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Uber isn't the only ridesharing service in the Capital City anymore.

Lyft announced that they are making their debut in Tallahassee on Wednesday.

To celebrate the arrival of Lyft, new passengers can use a special code LYFTLOVE17 to receive $5 off their first ride.

“So many areas of Florida have benefited from the opportunities that ridesharing represents, for both passengers and drivers. The arrival of Lyft in our community will mean more jobs, and more transportation options for everyone from college students to working professionals to retirees,” said Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. 

Lyft is now available in just over 300 cities and continues to distinguish itself through its positive in-car experience, for both passengers and drivers.

Leon County Commissioner John Dailey said, “With our community continuing to grow throughout Leon County, our residents should have a full range of transportation options to meet their needs. Ridesharing is a safe and reliable option, and we’re pleased to see it expand with the addition of Lyft in our community.”

How Lyft Works:

  1. Request: Whether you’re riding solo or with friends, you’ve got options. Just tap request and a driver’s there.
  2. Ride: After just a few taps in the Lyft app, a carefully-screened driver will be on the way to you — just set your pickup point.
  3. Pay: When the ride ends, just pay and rate your driver through your phone.
