The switch to regional Lounges made big waves in our online community. For Jan in Sacramento — who goes by MomLyft when her ’stache is tied on — our bigger Facebook groups provided a way to be more connected to the driver community, at home and afar."When Lyft replaced our individual city Facebook lounges with regional Lounges, I saw an opportunity to connect with even more communities to make new friends," Jan said, "so I set out to visit each community in our Lounge."
With that goal in mind, MomLyft hopped in her ride for a tour though her region — and she was delighted by the faces waiting for her behind the Facebook profiles. Read on for her recap!
I had no idea how similar this city was to San Francisco as far as its size, buildings, and tourist population. There's so much Lyft potential here!
The drivers I met in the Central Valley with work really well together and do a great job of keeping each other informed of hot spots and promotional opportunities.
This new community already has a close-knit driver family. When we got together, it felt like a family reunion. I can't wait to go back with my glow ’stache and help them promote!
This brand-new community has some very enthusiastic drivers.
Our crew up north does a great job of keeping each other informed of hot spots and areas that need more coverage in Napa, Sonoma, and Santa Rosa.
This city is definitely the example all other cities will want to follow when they reach their 2-year anniversary. Drivers know what it takes to be a successful in an established city, and are still enthusiastic and welcoming to the new drivers.
The overall theme among Pacific drivers: a love for Lyft and desire to keep it growing in their cities. This trip allowed me to learn more about each community, share stories and ideas for themes, give out "Glowstache" instructions and my famous popcorn recipe. I have to say, though, that the most import takeaway from this trip was that I made new friends in each community!
