Launch Report: Miami Joins the Family

From Aventura to Homestead, and all over South Beach, Music City is now flashing the ’stache throughout one of Florida's most popular destinations — Miami. We've given the city it's very first taste of ridesharing, and they love it! Shout-out to Shezan for sharing the very first ride.

It's Party Tyme

The 305 welcomed the ’stache with a beautiful launch party that included a graffiti artist, a photo booth, arts and crafts, plenty of new pioneers, and drivers eager to spread the movement.

Miami Hits the Road

The launch party was just the warm-up. The real fun happened after those first fistbumps!

On her inaugural weekend out, Jessica got a head start on her Byngo card with this photo of her first-time passenger.

Jennifer and her passenger had so much fun, they had to grab the cuddlestache for a Lyftstagram!

Who can resist a Lyftstagram with a cuddlestache? Certainly not Johnni and his passengers. They look like they had a blast!

Feedback Files 

Perhaps the best part of launching a new city is how excited the passengers are to finally see the ’stache. Here's what some of them had to say:

To Danny from Sam: "Danny is a great dude! Thanks for the ride!"

To Simon from Eelsekius:  "Awesome driver. On time and very nice. He even helped me carry my stuff to the door!"

To Marcella from Fernando: "Excellent driver. I will do this again!"
