Lyft and Taco Bell team up for late-night drive-thru munchies

Lyft is partnering with Taco Bell for late night munchies pit stops

Taco Mode is an in-app option for Lyft passengers that not only makes sure riders are satiated on their long hops between bars, but also brings potential Taco Bell swag, custom in-car menus, a tricked-out taco-themed vehicle and a free Doritos Locos taco their way when they "drive-thru" in their Lyft-comandeered auto. Heck no. You're going to hop into a Lyft and take a ride to your neighborhood T-Bell to stuff yourself silly with Gorditas, Nachos Bellgrande, and XXL Chalupas.

"The ride sharing company is introducing a new partnership with Taco Bell titled 'Taco Mode". The closest Taco Bell is miles away and you definitely aren't planning to literally "run to the border" after a few cocktails, craft beers, and Zimas.

The mode only allows customers to stop at Taco Bell from 9 p.m.to 2 a.m.

Passengers will even be able to complete their Taco Bell order via an iPad menu in the Lyft vehicle, so the order will be ready once the vehicle arrives.

The feature is being tested in Orange County, California, but Lyft expects to roll it out nationally in 2018. The mode will allow riders to add a side trip to Taco Bell during their ride with just one tap. The plan, though, is to expand Taco Mode nationwide by next year.

Taco Mode is only available in Orange County, California, right now, specifically from dates July 27 to 29, as well as August 3 to 5.

One group isn't celebrating, however: Lyft drivers, who are contract workers that use their own cars.

"They should never eat anything in YOUR vehicle and for them to promote this is foul".

When a customer chooses Taco Mode instead of Line, the Lyft app's auto icons will suddenly turn into tacos.
