Lyft teams with Taco Bell, offers new free-taco detour option

SAN ANTONIO - For you midnight snackers and late night partiers out there, we've got news you can sink your teeth into! 

When the munchies hit, you will no longer have to buy your ride-share driver food as the incentive to take you through a drive-thru.

Lyft announced Tuesday a unique partnership with non-other than the Mexican fast food giant Taco Bell.

Lyft hails the ride-thru experience as a 'first-of-its-kind offering' called 'Taco Mode.'

According to a blog post on Lyft's website, Taco Mode is an in-app option for Lyft riders, providing passengers with the ultimate Taco Bell experience — including a free Doritos Locos Taco when you ride-thru Taco Bell on the way to your next destination.

The in-app option will only be available first as a limited release in Orange County, California on July 27-30, and August 3-6, 2017, from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.

But don't fret...

Taco Mode is slated to expand to additional markets by the end of the year, with a nationwide rollout in 2018, according to Lyft.

"This extraordinary partnership infuses the culinary world into the ride-sharing cultural movement, making a late-night run for tacos more convenient — and fun — than ever," Lyft representatives said on the blog.
