[ATLANTA] (November 15, 2018 ) Lyft, the nation’s fastest-growing rideshare service., and Georgia Aquarium, one of the world’s largest aquariums, are today announcing their new partnership to make it easier for aquatic animal fans to get to and from the popular landmark.
Lyft, which is now the official rideshare sponsor of Georgia Aquarium, has established two dedicated pick-up and drop-off locations at the Aquarium to simplify travel before and after a visit--one by the main entrance at Baker Street, and one by the Oceans Ballroom entrance and East Pedestrian Walkway on Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd.
Both locations will be marked with Lyft branded signs displayed during Aquarium operating hours.
“Georgia Aquarium is one of Atlanta’s most-visited destinations, and it’s easy to see why,” said Sam Bond, general manager of Lyft Southeast. “We’re excited to partner with the Aquarium to let guests focus on enjoying their visit and leave transportation up to Lyft.”
Lyft is also the presenting sponsor of the Aquarium shuttle rides, which transport guests back and forth from the parking deck to the entrance.
Lyft has recently built relationships with some of Atlanta’s most important institutions. In addition to its partnership with Georgia Aquarium, the company has forged landmark alliances with local giants like the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta United, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Zoo Atlanta and Delta -- all within the past few years.
“Our new partnership with Lyft is just another way we are enhancing guest experience,” said Anthony Rivera, vice president of guest experience and hospitality at Georgia Aquarium. “By having these designated areas and the shuttle service, guests will be able to enjoy their visit before they even enter the Aquarium with these new and easy transportation options.”
