Taco Bell partners with Lyft to offer 'ride-thru' meals

IRVINE, California -- Taco Bell is testing a new service that allows users of the ride-sharing app Lyft to add a Taco Bell stop to their ride with the click of a button.

The companies have announced "Taco Mode," an option for Lyft app users. Taco Bell says Lyft users who select Taco Mode get a custom menu, a taco-themed car and a free Doritos Locos Taco when they make their "ride-thru" stop.




The fast food chain and Lyft are set to test the feature in Orange County, California during the next two weekends, according to a statement from Lyft.

The companies expect to expand the service into other markets later this year and roll it out nationwide in 2018.
