The City of Georgetown has extended its partnership with Lyft to offer discounted rides to new and existing users through the end of October or until all available funds are expended, whichever comes first. The extension of the promotion will allow the City to learn about rideshare use in Georgetown.
Rides that originate in the Georgetown city limits are eligible for the Lyft partnership. Lyft passengers are responsible for the first $2 of the cost of the ride. The City will then pay up to $10 above that initial passenger payment. The passenger is responsible for any additional cost of the ride. The promotion allows for up to 10 rides per customer, per month until all funds for the pilot program are expended.
To use the promotion on a Lyft ride in Georgetown, download the Lyft app on an iPhone or Android smartphone and set up a Lyft account using a credit card. Then add the code GTOWNTX18 to the promo section of the Lyft app before requesting a ride. Note that you must be in “personal” mode for the code to apply. You will only need to enter the code one time. Once you have requested your ride, “applied credit” is displayed on the ride payment screen.
Data from the limited-time promotion will help the city to better understand ride use patterns for a transportation network company. Ride data available to the City after the pilot will not include names or addresses of riders or any credit card information.
The Georgetown Municipal Airport has two Courtesy Cars available for the use of visitors that fly into the airport and require ground transportation into the City of Georgetown. The primary purpose of the Courtesy Car is to provide free, complimentary transportation into the City of Georgetown, for a short period of time, to airport visitors for business or pleasure.
The car is available from 7:00 a.m. until the Terminal closes at 7:00 p.m., seven days per week. A valid driver’s license is required, and we request that use of the car to no more than four hours.
Due to City Insurance limitations, the car is not to be driven outside of the Georgetown City Limits.
Every attempt is made to keep the car’s gas tank full; however, we ask that in exchange for using the car users consider putting some fuel in.
We are not able to accept reservations. The cars are available on a first come, first served basis only. For more information please contact the Airport Terminal Customer Service Desk at (512) 930-3666.
