A new feature from ride-hailing service Lyft will give locals the chance to hitch a ride in the ghostbusters’ car later this week.
The feature, dubbed “ghost mode,” is the product of a partnership between Lyft and the new “Ghostbusters” film. By using “ghost mode,” riders will be able to hail an original Ecto-1 or a replica across the D.C. area Friday and Saturday between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.
“We have one Ecto-1 on the road and we will have four other vehicles that will be replicated to look much like this,” said Lyft’s Morgan Gunter during a promotional appearance at the Clarendon Metro station in Arlington earlier today. “There will be some fun giveaways such as Twinkies and Hi-C. It’s a fun promotion around the opening of Ghostbusters.”
