American Dream in East Rutherford, which opens October 25, has partnered with Lyft to offer “convenient, comprehensive on-demand transit for guests and employees,” said Don Ghermezian, chief executive officer of American Dream, in a press release.
Lyft will serve as the destination’s official rideshare partner and provide access to and from the megamall.
The partnership includes a designated Lyft pickup and drop-off location as well as a monthly program giving back to New Jersey nonprofit organizations.“Lyft is excited to partner with American Dream to bring a new level of service to our riders,” said Eric Plummer, market manager of Lyft New Jersey. “This partnership demonstrates our commitment to providing ease of transportation to New Jersey and New York residents, as well as our shared dedication to giving back to our local community.”
The Lyft pickup and drop-off location at American Dream will be easily accessed to allow drivers to meet riders in a dedicated space.
As a part of this multifaceted partnership, American Dream and Lyft, both integrated community partners, will select one local nonprofit organization per month to receive up to $10,000 worth of complimentary tickets to an American Dream entertainment venue, along with transportation to and from the property provided by Lyft. The first recipient for this program will be Big Brothers Big Sisters NJ.
