Lyft, the fastest growing rideshare company in the U.S., todayannounced that it has entered into a partnership to become the official rideshare company of the St. Louis Cardinals for the 2018 baseball season.
The partnership, which officially launches on June 5, will enable riders to take advantage of Lyft’s affordable and reliable transportation services throughout the year for home games, concerts and other events at Busch Stadium and Ballpark Village via exclusive pick-up and dropoff zones located in front of Ballpark Village and on a nearby street.
“As a Cardinals fan, there is nothing better than a perfect summer day at Busch Stadium,” said Joe Schlichter, St. Louis Market Manager, Lyft. “We are proud to be associated with one of the most beloved teams in professional baseball and a club that has helped define the city of St. Louis for the past 136 years. Our partnership will make the game day experience even better for fans and concertgoers by getting them to and from games and events responsibly and without the hassle of parking.”
“We want to provide Cardinals fans with the best possible game day experience, and a big part of that revolves around seamlessly getting to and from Busch Stadium and Ballpark Village. Lyft’s dedication to providing reliable transportation in St. Louis makes them the perfect rideshare partner, and the new pick-up and drop-off zones will make getting to games and events that much more enjoyable,” said Thane van Breusegen, Cardinals Vice President of Corporate Sales, Marketing and Stadium Entertainment.
