Stoners And Drunks REJOICE! Lyft And Taco Bell Team Up To Get You Late-Night Munchies!
Taco Bell and Lyft know their target demographic: stoners and drunks. So why not combine their forces to make one mighty late-night munchies delivery system Voltron by accommodating both of their customer bases who are under the influence and desperately need food? Lyft will attempt to counter UberEats, the collaboration between Uber and McDonald’s, with their version that satisfies your cravings for chalupas. The two companies are partnering up to make the dreams and hopes of stoners and drunks come alive, but there’s a catch, because there’s always a catch. The service is in a trial mode right now and is only offered in one county in the entire nation.
Starting this Thursday thru Saturday, and August 3-5, between the hours of 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. the two companies are testing something called “Taco Mode.” Customers of the ride-hailing app will have the option to stop at Taco Bell on their way to their destination. The app will also allow you to pay for your Cheesy Gordita Crunch, Fiery Cheese Doritos Locos Taco Supreme, 7-Layer Burrito, Chipotle Chicken Griller, Crunchwrap Supreme, and Mountain Dew Spiked Lemonade through the app. However, this is just a test and is only available in Orange County, California for those in a designated radius of the Taco Bell at 1400 W. Coast Highway in Newport Beach. California always gets all the cool shit first.
Lyft passengers who use the Taco Mode “ride-thru” will be picked up in a “taco-themed car” that will offer a custom in-car menu and free Doritos Locos tacos. If all goes well during the test times then Taco Mode will be unleashed across the U.S. in 2018. Nothing says, “I am incredibly fucked up” like requesting to be taken to Taco Bell at 2 in the morning.
