Lyft, the nation’s fastest-growing on-demand transportation company in the U.S., and The Woodruff Arts Center, one of the largest arts venues in the U.S., are today announcing their new partnership to make it easier for Atlanta arts patrons to get to and from art exhibitions and performances at the popular landmark.
Lyft, which is now the official rideshare sponsor of The Woodruff Arts Center, has established two dedicated pick-up and drop-off locations at the Center to simplify travel before and after a visit.
“We’re truly delighted to work with such a beloved Atlanta organization,” said Sam Bond, general manager of Lyft Southeast. “Through this partnership with The Woodruff Arts Center, local arts patrons can skip the drive and just enjoy their day at the symphony, museum or theatre.”
The Woodruff delivers world-class arts and arts education programming via its three Art Partners: the Tony Award-winning Alliance Theatre, GRAMMY Award-winning Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and nationally-renowned High Museum of Art. The Woodruff Arts Center will celebrate its 50thanniversary this fall and is the nation’s third-largest arts center. The Woodruff and its Art Partners serve approximately 800,000 patrons each year, including 200,000 students and children.
In addition to its celebrated programming, The Woodruff Arts Center’s Home Depot Veterans Program provides no-cost access to the arts for veterans and military families.
Lyft has recently built relationships with some of Atlanta’s most important institutions. In addition to its partnership with The Woodruff Arts Center, the company has forged landmark alliances with local giants like the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta United, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Zoo Atlanta, and Delta—all within the last year. Lyft also enjoys a special partnership with Delta Air Lines, a leading Woodruff Arts Center corporate partner.
“We are always working to improve the patron experience. Part of that means making the journey as easy as possible,” said Doug Shipman, President, and CEO of The Woodruff Arts Center. “Our location in Midtown is perfect for so many things, but it means we have to find better solutions when it comes to parking.” He continued, “One of the last worries I want to have when traveling is finding a parking space. Lyft can alleviate that concern and let patrons just get to the art!”
