Lyft made a HUGE announcement on Tuesday (perfect Taco Tuesday announcement LOL) that they are now partnering up with Taco Bell that will enable riders to make a free pit stop at the fast-food chain on their way home from the bar. E! News reports that the new “Taco Mode” feature will give munchie-craving passengers the option to hit up the Taco Bell drive-thru between the hours of 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. “We realized that for every person who has asked their Lyft driver to make a pit stop at Taco Bell–and we’ve seen many–there are likely those who weren’t sure if this was possible,” Taco Bell CMO Marisa Thalberg says in a statement to Business Insider. Taco Mode will also include a custom in-car menu, free Doritos Locos tacos, and what the company calls a “taco-themed car.” The ride service will begin testing the new feature in the next two weeks in Newport Beach, California, with plans to expand the service across the U.S. in 2018.
