Rideshare giant Lyft announced Aug. 31 its official partnership with LSU Sports Properties, serving as the official rideshare partner of LSU Athletics.
Along with in-venue signage and event marketing, this partnership creates additional transportation options for fans arriving at and departing from LSU Athletics events in Baton Rouge.
Lyft additionally provides a responsible and reliable transportation option to fans in the Greater New Orleans area who might prefer to “stand up and roar” locally during games.
First-time Lyft riders who use promo code “GEAUXTIGERS” will receive up to $5 off their first four rides and fans are encouraged to download and ride with Lyft.
“We’re thrilled to be the official rideshare partner of LSU Athletics,” said Jessica Inman, Lyft Louisiana Market Manager. “Partnering with the LSU community connects fans with Lyft’s responsible, reliable, and affordable service. With a fleet of local drivers in both New Orleans and Baton Rouge, we are looking forward to the start of the season.”
“LSU Sports Properties works hand-in-hand with the athletics department in an effort to constantly improve our fans experience,” said Ward Wyatt, general manager of LSU Sports Properties. “With Lyft as the Official Rideshare partner of LSU Athletics, we are able to provide another transportation option to our fans getting to and from athletics events.”
