It’s almost hard to remember the days before ride-sharing apps, and we are so lucky we no longer have to. A safe right is just a few clicks away. Those safe rides are about to start bringing a party of their own. Starting this weekend Lyft will be testing out a “Party Mode” for those ready to gather a group of friends and get the night started on the way to the destination.
Lyft “Party Mode” a luxury party bus service for up to 12 riders that offers a vibrant experience including room to dance, take pictures, lounge and ride in comfort. For a limited time and only available to passengers with a pickup and drop-off location on Miami Beach, Lyft Party Mode will appear as a ride option on the app from 9pm on Friday through 2am on Sunday morning for two special weekends:
- Friday, August 4 – Sunday, August 6
- Friday, August 11 – Sunday, August 13
To request a party bus, users on Miami Beach can open the Lyft app, tap Party Mode within the home screen and select their location and destination. Passengers must be over 21 years old to take a ride in Party Mode. The party bus will be priced the same as a Lyft Lux SUV, but with enough space to fit you and 11 of your friends, splitting the cost of the ride makes it totally worth it – plus you’ll be arriving in style.
To enhance the experience even more, Lyft has partnered with one of South Beach’s most sought-out venues, ORA Nightclub. Those in the know who select ORA Nightclub* as their drop-off location will have the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary, enhanced VIP experience, which will include:
- Free admission to ORA Nightclub before midnight and VIP treatment
- Free table service with one (1) Premium Vodka bottle included
- Two (2) drink tickets per guest
- Access to a designated Lyft VIP area
“Passengers will be able to enjoy some of the best nightlife Miami Beach has to offer, all while making the commute a key component of the party experience,” said Samuel Cohen, general manager of Lyft Florida.
While for the next two weeks the “Party Mode” will be in test mode, there’s a chance it could turn into something we could see more of in the future.
*Must be over 21 to receive complimentary benefits at ORA Nightclub. Other restrictions may apply.
