Lyft Elevates Corporate Travel Solutions Through Partnership with American Express Global Business Travel
As we continue to grow our corporate travel efforts and offerings, we’re excited to elevate our offering through a new partnership with American Express Global Business Travel (GBT), a leading global travel management company. Together, we’re providing an innovative business travel solution that integrates Lyft’s ridesharing platform with GBT’s extensive offerings in booking, travel assistance, management, and analysis and reporting.
A First-of-its-Kind Integrated Solution
Lyft and GBT will provide a powerful, seamless way for corporate travel managers and administrators to transform their ground transportation programs. Drawing on shared data utilized by the platform, corporate clients can count on the integrated solution to provide the best ground transportation options — including Lyft ridesharing — for cost and convenience. Key benefits include:
Cost savings: Minimize spend by offering ground transportation alternatives
Reporting: Gain new insights into traveler trends with a more holistic picture of a traveler’s end-to-end trip experience
Flexible booking: Access flexible options for booking ridesharing via the Lyft app, and later in 2018 via the Amex GBT Mobile app
