Partnership provides discount promotions for rides to and from for all stadium events
ROCHESTER, NY (June 6, 2018) – Marina Auto Stadium is partnering with Lyft– the fastest growing on-demand transportation service in the US – for the 2018-2019 season. The partnership establishes Lyft as the venue’s “Official Rideshare Partner,” offering discount promotions for patrons that travel to and from Marina Auto Stadium events.
Event attendees can use promo code ROCMARINA to receive $20 in free ride credit for new users. A dedicated Lyft pick-up and drop-off zone will be available on Smith Street, with easy access to the stadium main entrance gates.
Lyft and Marina Auto Stadium will also offer special social media promotions throughout the season. Stadium discounts for Lyft drivers are planned for later in the year.
“We are excited to collaborate with such an important multi-purpose stadium in Rochester,” said Ann Ferracane, General Manager for Lyft Upstate New York. “With spring and summer comes professional soccer and other community events! Lyft is proud to provide a new way for fans to experience event day as they travel to and from the stadium all season long.”
“Ridesharing is a new convenient way for our guests to arrive to the stadium to experience our events,” said David and Wendy Dworkin, Co-Owners of the Rochester Rhinos and Marina Auto Stadium Operators. “We couldn’t ask for a better partner than Lyft to offer safe and reliable transportation to and from stadium events for our attendees.”
To use Lyft or sign up to become a driver, patrons can download the Lyft app.

Lyft is the fastest growing rideshare company in the U.S. and is available to 95 percent of the US population and in Ontario, Canada.
