Customers can now use the Amtrak mobile app to access the Lyft app to request a ride. New users of Lyft will receive $5 off each of their first four Lyft rides by using a promo code. Lyft operates in more than 360 communities across the U.S., covering 80% of the U.S. population and reaching 97% of Amtrak riders.

The partnership allows for a seamless end-to-end travel experience from doorstep to an Amtrak station.

“We are focused on improving the customer experience, and this is one way we are working to make your entire journey as seamless and enjoyable as possible,” said Jason Molfetas, executive VP, marketing and business development, for Amtrak.

“We’re looking forward to working with Amtrak. As a fixture of American travel, Amtrak makes it simple and convenient for passengers, something Lyft feels passionately about as well,” said David Baga, chief business officer for Lyft. “Both companies have a long-standing commitment to supporting communities we serve and we’re excited to grow together.”

Amtrak and Lyft are excited about this partnership because it offers immediate benefits to travelers — and it’s just the beginning, with both looking to build their partnership across the 46 state Amtrak network, according to a press release.
