Lyft Is Offering Free Rides to Philly Parks on Friday

Forecasters are predicting a beautiful fall day – so you'll probably want to spend it outdoors instead of waiting in line.

Here’s the forecast for Friday: 52 and sunny, with a light breeze.

It’ll be a perfect fall day – so why spend it standing in line at some jam-packed department store?

This Black Friday, Lyft and REI are teaming up to offer $10 off rides to parks in 12 U.S. cities, including Philly.

You can travel to one of following locations for free (or for $10 less than you usually would): Wissahickon Valley Park, Penn Treaty Park, Pennypack Park, Benjamin Rush State Park, Bartram’s Mile and Fairmount Park.

The deal comes two years after REI first launched its #OptOutside campaign and decided close its stores on Black Friday. Since then, more than 7 million people and 700 organizations have gotten involved in the shopping alternative.
