Now that the Charlotte School of Law is located in the heart of uptown some of you may not want to deal with driving, traffic, or parking. Why not get a Lyft?? It’s an alternative to a taxi cab where you are greeted by a friendly fist bump and picked up by a car with a pink mustache.
According to their Facebook page, “Lyft is your friend with a car.” Lyft is an affordable ride service and social media community that is accessible by means of an app on your phone. It started in San Francisco and is now available in Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Boston, San Diego, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, St. Paul and Indianapolis. This new service launches in Charlotte Thursday, September 12th, 2013.
The Lyfters are celebrating their new service in Charlotte with a free launch party at Heist Brewery located at 2909 North Davidson Street, from 6:30pm to 10pm. There you’ll be able to enjoy local art, free food as well as an open bar. In addition anyone who attends will leave with $50 in Lyft credits for rides. All you have to do is to download the Lyft app onto your smartphone and show the app for admission to the launch party.
