We love ride sharing services. They’re cheaper than cabs, quick, convenient, and help us make good decisions regarding travel when we head out to the bars. The one thing we wish they offered: pit stops for food on the way home. Well, now Lyft has teamed up with Taco Bell to bring us just that. And they’re calling it Taco Mode.
For those who don’t already have Lyft: it’s as simple as downloading the app onto your phone and punching in the necessary personal information. Then, when scheduling a Lyft ride, you just have to choose Taco Mode from the main menu and your Lyft driver will automatically be routed to the nearest Taco Bell drive-through on your route before taking you home between the hours of 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. The fare – presumably – will be integrated into the ride total before pickup and, we assume, you’ll pay for the food yourself from the back seat. The program will roll out in Newport Beach, CA for the next two weeks, but is set for a nationwide release in the next year.
