OTTAWA (Oct. 2, 2019) - Lyft, whose mission is to improve people's lives with the world's best transportation, is pleased to announce an exclusive partnership with the Ottawa Senators and Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, in an effort to help get fans to and from the game without having to drive or park.
The partnership will officially kick off on Saturday, Oct. 5., just in time for the Ottawa Senators Home Opener against the New York Rangers and includes an exclusive Lyft Pickup/Drop-off zone at the main entrance of Canadian Tire Centre, southeast of Gate 1 on Frank Finnigan Way, along with discounted rides on select game days.
To celebrate the Ottawa Senators™ Home Opener, Lyft is offering riders 25 per cent off two rides to or from the game by using the code SENSOCT19.
