The throngs of fans headed to Atlanta for Super Bowl 53 is bound to cripple the city’s already congested commute.
To ease some of those problems, the ride-hailing service Lyft is offering half-off rides to MARTA stations and a few other deals for visitors looking to make their stay memorable.
“The city is working hard to make sure that it’s as simple as possible to get around Atlanta during this time, and we want to support that mission in any way we can,” said Sam Bond, general manager of Lyft Southeast, in a news release.
Here are the deals Lyft is offering to Atlanta and its visitors:
• Lyft is offering 50 percent off rides to MARTA stations during the week of the game. The discount begins at midnight Monday, Jan. 28 and ends at 4 a.m. Feb. 4. Riders can receive the discount using the code SUPERMARTA in their Lyft apps. The discount does not include trips to or from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
• Delta Air Lines reward members will also get a deal for taking Lyft. Delta SkyMiles users can earn five miles for every $1 they spend taking Lyft in Atlanta. The deal begins Feb. 1 and ends Feb. 3. Riders can learn more about the deal by visiting www.deltalyft.com.
• Visitors to Atlanta will also receive discounted rides to more than 40 craft breweries in Georgia. The deal is a part of a partnership with the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild. Riders headed to any of the breweries will receive 50 percent off their Lyft ride home. See a full list of participating breweries here: lyft.com/gabeer.
