Lyft partners with Taco Bell to satisfy those late-night munchies

Lyft is partnering with Taco Bell for late night munchies pit stops

Nothing tops off a night of debauchery quite like a stop at Taco Bell-and Lyft is making that easier. The fast food chain and Lyft are set to test the feature in Orange County during the next two weekends - July 27-30 and August 3-6, between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m., according to a statement from Lyft.

Your Lyft ride home from the party just got 100 times tastier. As you may already know, both Lyft and Uber are big on the themed auto events, so why shouldn't this expand to include a partnership with Taco heckin' Bell? In addition to the chance to order drive-thru Taco Bell as a passenger, Taco Mode also includes a custom in-care menu, free Doritos Locos, and what the company calls a "taco-themed auto". But the plan is to then "expand Taco Mode into additional markets by the end of the year, with an expected nationwide rollout in 2018".

One group isn't celebrating, however: Lyft drivers, who are contract workers that use their own cars. Some drivers actually enforce "no eating" rules in their cars-the customers can't even open bags.

Initially, about 15 Lyft vehicles wrapped in festive taco wallpaper will partake in Taco Mode.




"Hell no! I don't want people eating messy tacos in my auto!" My auto my rules, no eating, drinking, drive thru or smoking, period.

"It's pretty obvious there's a lot of food delivery out there and lots of apps and services that allow you to take food to people", Ms. Waters tells The New York Times.

"You'd better be paying WAY more than $0.10/minute for wait times on this".

When a customer chooses Taco Mode instead of Line, the Lyft app's vehicle icons will suddenly turn into tacos.
