If you haven’t used Blue @ Night yet, here’s how it works in three easy steps:
Step 1: Set up the Lyft app
Download the "Lyft" mobile app from Google Play (Android) or the App Store (iPhone). Open the app during service hours (Friday - Saturday, 8pm - 3am). Tap your photo in the top left and enter promo code SAMOBLUE3. Next, select 'Lyft' as your ride type.
Step 2: Request your pickup location
Request a pickup from the 26th Street/Bergamot, 17th Street/SMC, or Downtown Santa Monica stations to any location within the designated Santa Monica service area (see map above). Wait at your desired pickup location.
Request a pickup from any location within the Santa Monica service area (see map), to one of the three Santa Monica Expo stations. Wait at your desired pickup location.
Step 3: Arrive at your final destination
A $3 charge will be applied to your default payment method on the app (credit, debit, or prepaid card, PayPal, Apple Pay, or Android Pay).
We hope you enjoy your Blue @ Night ride!
