Lyft Announces Roadside Assistance, Maintenance Scheduling

Nov. 21, 2022

People who ride with Lyft can request a tow truck, reserve parking and soon they can schedule maintenance.  

Nov. 21, 2022—Rideshare mobile app Lyft has announced new features that include roadside assistance and maintenance, according to Yahoo!

Lyft customers can ask for 24/7 roadside assistance through Agero, which also includes tow truck access. Through SpotHero, customers can reserve parking. Yahoo! reports that booking car maintenance at Goodyear Auto centers will be available through the app in the near future.

For those loyal Lyft customers who subscribe to the app's Pink paid subscription program, the services from Goodyear will be offered at a 15% discount. Additionally, the Pink membership will fully cover four roadside assistance instances per year. 

Some of these features are still being built up, and other are not available everywhere. For instance, the SpotHero feature can only be found in 30 cities so far, and roadside assistance is not available in Nevada.
