This Weekend You Could Catch a Ride in the Ghostbusters Ecto-1
Who ya gonna hail?
Lyft, the ride sharing app, is teaming up with Sony to give riders the chance to get in touch with their inner Ghostbuster.
People in New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, or Washington, D.C., can catch a Lyft in the Ecto-1, the retrofitted hearse featured in both the original Ghostbusters film, as well as the new version starring Melissa McCarthy, Kate Mckinnon, Leslie Jones, and Kristen Wiig.
On Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 2, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time, riders can use their Lyft app to hail a ride in the Ecto-1 by toggling into “Ghost Mode.” When your ride pulls up, it will either be a replica of one the cars used in the movies or the original Ecto-1s used in the film.
Even better, the ride is complimentary and guaranteed ghost-free.
Not only do you get a sweet ride home (or to the bar or the National Mall or one of America’s Most Haunted Destinations), but the car could come with in-car Ghostbusters-themed swag, such as Hi-C Ecto Coolers and Hostess Key Lime Slime Twinkies.
If that’s not enough to get you firing up your phone, two passengers will win a grand prize of two tickets each to the Ghostbusters premiere in Los Angeles on July 9.
