Lyft, an on-demand transportation service, has launched in Boise. In addition to providing rides to people in town, users will also be able to take Lyft to and from Boise Airport.

This weekend, Boise State fans will be able to catch Lyft rides to and from the BSU Broncos game as they take on the Colorado State Rams on their home turf.

According to a Lyft news release, new passengers will be able to use the code “LYFTINBOI” to receive five dollars off their first Lyft ride within the Boise coverage area.

Lyft was founded in June 2012 by Logan Green and John Zimmer to reconnect people and communities through better transportation. Lyft officials say the company is one of the fastest growing rideshare companies in the nation and is available in more than 200 cities.
