Lyft expands into Colorado mountains towns like Aspen, Vail and Breckenridge
August 15, 2017
The San Francisco-based company Lyft has expanded its operation into the High Country, with new app-based transportation services in Summit, Eagle, Pitkin, Routte, Grand and Miguel counties.
With the expansion, Lyft adds a number of premiere Rocky Mountain destinations — such as Vail, Aspen, Steamboat Springs, Winter Park, Telluride, Copper, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin and Breckenridge — to its growing list of more than 300 cities nationwide in which the company is already operating.
According to the company, Colorado gets 13 million ski tourists a year, and the Lyft app has been opened more than 150,000 times in the mountains since the beginning of the year.
As a promotion, Lyft passengers can use the code "MTNLAUNCH" for $5 off a ride in these new regions, according to the company.

"We are excited to bring a new style of cuisine to Summit Place with an experienced and quality operator," Summit Place asset manager Brad Kornfeld said in a prepared statement announcing the move. "The restaurant will be a new build-out and will be a great addition to the shopping center."
Design work is underway, according to Kornfeld, and Pho Bay will open at 270-274 Summit Place, near Sunshine Café, after plan approval and construction are complete.
With the addition, the building Pho Bay is moving into at the Silverthorne shopping center will be fully leased.
A worker at the restaurant said on Tuesday that the owner of Pho Bay was out of town on vacation and unavailable for comment.
