Yup, the city of Centennial has got your back with a free Lyft ride if you’re trying to get that sweet, sweet first mile/last mile hookup.

It’s part of pilot program that seeks to evaluate a cheaper alternative to the local Call-n-Ride. For the bargain price of $200,000 each, the city and the Denver South Transportation Management Association think they can operate a tech-savvy and more streamlined pilot that doesn’t require an advanced reservation like the current Call-n-Ride.

Anyway, next party step: either use the Lyft app and the promo code GOCENTENNIAL, or download the Go Denver app from Google Play or the Apple Store. If you’re using the latter option, the party only gets more intense:

“When you first open the app, you’ll be prompted to create a Go Denver account. Then, click the menu button in the top left corner, and follow the link to Go Centennial.  If you don’t have a Lyft account you will be prompted to download the app and create one. From the Go Denver Ride Now map screen, just enter your origin and destination, and click “route.” If your trip is within the service area, a ‘Lyft Line to Light Rail’ option will be provided. Click that option and follow the prompts to book your Lyft Line ride.”

Finally, know that every party must end. The pilot program is currently slated to run for only six months.
