EVCS, Lyft collaborate on discounts for EV ride-share drivers

The program offers discounted charging on EVCS stations for Lyft's EV drivers across California, Oregon and Washington.

EVCS and Lyft have launched a new partnership program where EV drivers on Lyft can benefit from discounted charging on the EVCS network. The program is available to all EV drivers on Lyft and encompasses all EVCS publicly accessible charging stations across California, Oregon and Washington. Through this program, EV drivers on Lyft have access to discounts on charging in the form of pay-as-you-go or monthly subscription plans. The discounts are applied to EVCS retail prices for both Level 2 and DC fast charging.

In addition, EV drivers on Lyft qualify for discounts on the “Unlimited Anytime” and “Unlimited Off-Peak” subscription plans. The Unlimited Anytime plan gives drivers unlimited charging privileges on the EVCS network, with unrestricted 24/7 access, the company says. The Unlimited Off-Peak plan allows for unlimited charging during the off-peak hours of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., EVCS said.

All EV drivers on Lyft qualify for tiered discounts on charging, with “Pro” drivers receiving the highest discounts. EV drivers on Lyft can find and start enrolling in the program at any time through their account on the Lyft app.

“EVCS is proud to partner with Lyft on accelerating rideshare electrification across the West Coast,” Karim Farhat, chief commercial officer at EVCS, said. “We believe Lyft drivers will greatly benefit from this program, by accessing a large network of reliable and conveniently located chargers and by realizing significant savings on their charging expenses.”
