When you call a Lyft in the District from Friday to Sunday, you could choose to ride in a bright, colorful sedan with the name of another country on it.
Lyft designed cars that represent eight countries across the world: Brazil, Ethiopia, Germany, Jamaica, Morocco, Peru, Indonesia and the United States. These internationally-themed cars will be accepting rides during certain hours this weekend, and every car is supposed to be driven by an international driver.
“Each Passport Mode vehicle has been transformed to showcase the famous landscapes, icons, and pastimes from the country it represents,” Lyft said in a statement. “With an international driver as your guide, you’ll get to know the music of their homeland and learn introductory phrases in a new language.”
The cars will be available to ride in Friday from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
