Taco Bell and Lyft join forces to offer late-night taco rides

By Time Out San Francisco editors

We knew we couldn't be the only ones who have asked a Lyft driver to hit up Taco Bell on the way home ... only to be rejected by said driver because the line was too long (but that's not the point). 

This week in Orange County, Taco Bell and Lyft are making late night dreams come true with Taco Mode. Between the hours of 9pm and 2am on July 27–30 and August 3–6, Lyft drivers can pick up drunkies and transport them to the Taco Bell drive-through. Just. Like. That. 

The in-app service allows riders to call a car—which appears onscreen as a tiny, mobile taco—that can then drive you directly to participating Taco Bells and home again, or stop there en route to another destination. Just when you thought things couldn't get better—riders will also receive a free Doritos Locos Taco during this trial run. 

Right now the trial is only taking place in Southern California, but nationwide rollout is planned for next year.
