Lyft Will Now Pay for Your Tinder Date's Ride
Dating is hard, but ride-sharing company Lyft is trying to make it a little easier.
It will now allow you to pay for your Tinder date’s ride.
It’s all part of trying to encourage more in-person dating as we slowly wind our way out of the coronavirus pandemic.
The system protects privacy by allowing you to send a credit — and set a destination for dropoff — without exchanging addresses or locations.
The credit can only be used for drop-offs within half a mile of the set destination so that your date can’t take advantage of you to gallivant all over town. Unused credits will be refunded.
It’s all about getting more business for Lyft, of course, and Tinder gains some goodwill among users, to boot.
I’d say happy Valentine’s Day, but, well, it’s October.
