Today & Saturday, Lyft offers free rides in the Ghostbusters Ecto-1

July 1, 2016

Some people aren't very excited about the new Ghostbusters film. Others can barely contain their enthusiasm. And still others are, like, "Meh, I'll watch it on Netflix next time I'm sick."

No matter where you fall on that spectrum, though, you can probably get fired up about this: today and tomorrow, Lyft is offering rides in the Ecto-1, the phantasm-fighting, tricked-out Cadillac featured in the film. Some of the cars are replicas, but some are models that were used in the new movie.

Still not enough for you? Then consider this: the rides are free.

Fans of high fructose corn syrup will also be happy to learn that the Ecto-1s come packed with Hi-C Ecto Cooler and Ghostbusters-themed Twinkies.

That's the good news.

The bad news? Lyft is only offering the rides in five cities: Boston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. If you're fortunate enough to reside in one of those metro areas, crack open your Lyft app and switch over to "Ghost Mode" to summon a ride. 

Those of us who live in the Wilderness Between the Coasts will have to be content watching the promo video above and dreaming about sweet pink smoke tires.

BTW, to many of us, this is the sweetest fruit born of the General Motors/Lyft partnership to date.
