Back from the Dead! Lyft Launches Zombie Delivery in New York and San Francisco

Editor October 30, 2015

Today, for one day only in San Francisco and New York City, Lyft is testing out a unique delivery mode. Flowers? Nope. Burritos? Psh. Dry cleaning? As if.

In partnership with Skybound’s The Walking Dead, which is celebrating the launch of Scopely’s chart-topping mobile game Skybound’s The Walking Dead: Road to Survival, Lyft is unleashing a Zombie takeover this Halloween. On Friday, October 30th, passengers can switch into “Zombie Mode” in their Lyft app to request a zombie to their door within minutes.

Lyft is also partnering with The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, whose comedians will be playing the important role of Lyft Zombie delivery men and women in New York City.


Simply open the Lyft app, toggle into “Zombie Mode” and hit “Request Zombie,” and a member of Lyft’s delivery personnel will be on their way with a chained zombie in tow.

Zombie delivery is free, but we can’t guarantee the living dead will always be on their best behavior. Be sure to snap a photo and use the hashtag #lyftzombiemode on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

For more on how Zombie Mode will work, watch our demo here. You can also learn more by visiting blog.lyft.com/posts/halloween15.

Still wondering what you would do with a Lyft Zombie? Look no further. Zombie delivery is the perfect solution to all your Hallows’ Eve needs. For instance:

  • Order a Lyft Zombie to your office and have it attend a Friday afternoon meeting as your proxy. Who calls Friday afternoon meetings and expects non-Zombie performance anyway?
  • Hire a Lyft Zombie to a friend’s house or office. There’s no better way to get in the Halloween spirits than scaring a friend with an undead delivery!
  • Request a Lyft Zombie to show up as a surprise guest to your Friday Halloween party. You’ll be a hero for giving everyone the best selfie opp of the year.

Zombie Mode will launch in the Lyft app in New York City and San Francisco on Friday, October 30, between 10am-8pm local time.
