Taco Bell and Lyft Join Forces to Get You Late Night Munchies
If you've ever asked your Lyft driver to stop for fast food on the way home from the bar and been given nothing but a three-star rating in return, that's all about to change. Lyft and Taco Bell are teaming up to give riders late-night snacks on demand.
The ride sharing app is testing out a “Taco Mode” button, which will summon a dedicated car that will take you to the nearest Taco Bell. You order your food through a custom menu on an in-car iPad, and complete a “ride-thru.” Then you continue on to your destination, chalupa in hand.
The Taco Mode cars will also be themed, and offer free Taco Bell swag and a Doritos Locos Taco to riders.
The app will begin testing the service this weekend in Orange County, California, for customers within the radius of a specific Taco Bell in Newport Beach. They will expand to other parts of California this year, and other areas of the country next year.
Taco Bell is slowly making its way to the top of our fast food rankings, with its new boozy Cantina, pop-up speakeasies and wedding services. But the ability to get a Crunchwrap Supreme on the way home from the bar? That's a dream come true.
