Rideshare Dating App Partnerships

Tinder and Lyft Have Partnered to Let Users Pay for a Ride

— March 23, 2021 — Lifestyle
Tinder and Lyft have announced a new partnership that will make it easier for users of the dating app to get together with their matches when planning to meet up in-person. The partnership will allow users to gift a Lyft Ride directly from the app to their love interest when they have planned to meet up for a date. This is positioned as a way for users to make a good first impression with their would-be romantic connection.

Tinder SVP of Business Development and Partnerships David Wyler spoke on the new Tinder and Lyft partnership saying, "We’re excited to partner with Lyft and work on innovative solutions for our members who are looking forward to getting back out there."
