Electrify America and Lyft collaborate on EV rideshare charging

Electrify America announced an agreement with Lyft to provide the rideshare company’s Express Drive program renters of electric vehicles (EV) with convenient and included charging on its DC fast charging network.

Express Drive is Lyft’s short-term car rental program that gives people wanting to drive on the rideshare platform access to an electric vehicle through its rental providers. The ultra-fast DC charging on Electrify America’s network is automatically included with the vehicle’s weekly rental and helps ensure that Lyft’s Express Drive EVs spend less time charging and more time giving rides.

Starting next month in Denver, Colorado, the electric vehicle fleet which was newly introduced to Lyft’s Express Drive program will begin to charge at Electrify America’s seven DC fast charging stations with 30 chargers. The company plans to add approximately 19 additional stations and about 75 more DC fast chargers by the end of 2021 in Denver.

As more electric vehicles are introduced into Lyft’s Express Drive program nationwide, the collaboration with Electrify America will grow to include these DC fast charger benefits in new markets.
