Drunk hunger is a very real affliction, and it's no secret that impaired people opt for services like Lyft when its time to head home after a night out, so the company is looking to satiate those alcohol-fueled cravings with its new 'Taco Mode.' In partnership with Taco Bell, Lyft riders can now activate Taco Mode to get their driver to take a detour to the nearest Taco Bell drive-thru before heading to their final destination.

Taco Mode isn't a fully accessible feature. Rather, it's only available between 9 PM and 2 AM, at the time of night when the aforementioned cravings tend to reach their peak. At the moment, the promotion is only available in Orange County, California, but Lyft and Taco Bell expect to expand it to the rest of the US by 2018.
