AURORA, Colo. — The ride sharing service Lyft launched a first-of-its-kind driver center in Aurora on Wednesday.
The facility is designed to offer fast and affordable auto service for all of Lyft’s drivers in the metro area.
"Aurora is home to the largest Lyft driver concentration in this region,” said Gabe Cohen, regional director for Lyft’s Rocky Mountain region.
To be close and convenient for Lyft’s core driver group, the company decided to open the new facility along South Havana Street in a 20,000 square-foot building.
The center’s maintenance shop offers essentially everything found at a regular garage, outside of collision and body work.
"We’ll do everything from oil changes to transmission,” Cohen said.
While drivers will still have to pay for the services, they will receive them at discounted prices.
"I’ll give you an example. So you can come to the driver’s center and get a full synthetic oil change for $49.99 with a free inspection, which is highly competitive in this area,” Cohen said.
The new driver center is located at 2930 S. Havana St. in Aurora.
It’s available to any Lyft driver, including those who also drive for Uber.
To schedule an appointment, drivers need to visit Lyft.com/drivercenter or look for "Service" in their Driver app. They can also just do a walk-in.
Aurora is the fifth U.S. city to feature a Lyft Driver Center.
