Last night Lyft hosted its St. Louis launch party at The Gramophone on Manchester. Lyft has quickly been spreading across the country as a friendly, affordable alternative to the common taxi cab. You download the Lyft app to your phone, request a driver, and your credit card is charged once you have reached your destination. Lyft likes to refer to itself as “your friend with a car.”
Social media is a big part of how this app became successful. Drivers and riders are encouraged to post about their experiences on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and whatever social sites they prefer. All drivers greet their customers with the Lyft fist bump and strive to make each ride fun and engaging. Lyft has very high standards for its drivers and their vehicles. Case in point, Infuz Account Executive, Mike Cisar is one of the St. Louis inaugural drivers. Next time you need a ride, use the Lyft app, and maybe Mike will take you where you need to go. Keep an eye out for pink mustaches around town!
Lyft official St. Louis Launch: April 18th at 7pm.
