Lyft named official ridesharing partner of Prime Companies
Partnership provides residents various amenities
COHOES, NY (June 5, 2018) – Cohoes-based real estate and hospitality company Prime Companies (Prime Cos) is partnering with Lyft – the fastest growing on-demand transportation service in the US. As part of Prime Cos’ continued commitment to providing residents amenity-based services, the partnership establishes Lyft as the “Official Rideshare Partner” to Prime Cos’ Cohoes, Green Island, Niskayuna, and Saratoga Springs’ apartment communities.
Dedicated Lyft pick-up and drop-off zones will be located at all Prime Companies luxury apartment communities: Hudson Square, Waters View, Riverwalk, The Hamlet, Tall Oaks, River’s Edge, Shelter Cove, and soon to be in Electric City which is currently under construction in Schenectady, NY. Prime Cos will also extend future complimentary rides to apartment residents.
"Prime Companies is excited to partner with Lyft to offer our residents a valuable amenity that promotes hassle-free transportation," said Bob Fisk, Regional Property Manager for Prime Companies. “Whether it is track season in Saratoga or the next festival in Troy or Albany, our residents will be close to it all.”
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Prime Companies and become an extension of their growing list of amenity-based services,” said Ann Ferracane, General Manager for Lyft Upstate New York. “Spring and summer bring a number of exciting events to major destinations that surround the apartment communities. Lyft is proud to provide responsible and reliable transportation to and from these events for Prime Co residents in the coming months.”
Benefits of the partnership will extend to Prime Cos’ Pavilion Grand Hotel in Saratoga Springs, NY beginning this July.
