Leasing and fleet management company LeasePlan USA has partnered with ride-hailing firm Lyft to offer its corporate clients a broader mobility solution in the United States.
Lyft has 1.4 million drivers and claims to be the fastest growing hailing firm in North America, but it has not yet launched in Europe.
The new partnership will enable LeasePlan drivers to book a Lyft ride when their company car is in for a service or repair without the hassle of expense reporting.
Jeff Schlesinger, president and chief executive officer at LeasePlan USA, said: “Our fleet clients are looking for ways to better control each aspect of their budgets, including ride-hailing.
“Many are also incorporating policies to address the ever-changing point-to-point service, and they need a partner to help manage it.”
The arrangement is a further step towards LeasePlan USA’s stated goal of becoming a mobility hub.
Ben Sternsmith, area vice president of Lyft Business, added: “We’re looking forward to providing thousands of organisations with better alternatives to traditional fleets – creating more flexibility and convenience, alongside better access to data.”
