Wallside Windows to Provide a Safe Ride Home from Opening Day at Half Off in Partnership with Lyft


IMPORTANT UPDATE:  Because Opening Day has been postponed, our Safe Ride program will be available both THURSDAY and FRIDAY from 1-8 p.m. Use code WALLSIDE2018 on the Lyft app for a safe ride home from Comerica Park.


Wallside Windows wants to make sure baseball fans have a safe ride home from opening day festivities in Detroit. Michigan’s #1 window manufacturer will once again provide a half off “Safe Ride With Wallside” for fans to use the rideshare service Lyft to get home safely. Because Opening Day has been postponed, the program will be available from 1-8 p.m. on both Thursday and Friday, March 29-30, 2018.

“At Wallside Windows, we love the Tigers,” said Chief of Staff Adam Blanck. “We want to make sure everyone who celebrates our team gets home safely on Opening Day.”

Fans departing Comerica Park will be able to enter WALLSIDE2018 as a promo code in the Lyft app before requesting a ride. Wallside Windows will pay for half the cost of their ride home.

“Last year, we were able to provide hundreds of Tigers fans with a safe ride home at half the cost. When those fans watch the games on TV, they hear us promote half off deals on the replacement windows we make, so this seemed like the right thing for us to do again this year. We’re glad we can provide a safe ride home from Opening Day at half off and we hope even more fans take us up on the offer this year,” explained Wallside Windows Vice President Stanford Blanck.

Wallside will cover half the total cost of Lyft rides up to $30 (or $15 toward Lyft rides that cost more than $30).

“Lyft is proud to provide a responsible ride whenever you need one and we’re thrilled to partner with Wallside to make this an option for fans on opening day,” said Elliot Darvick, Lyft’s General Manager for Detroit.

Wallside Windows is a family owned business that started in Detroit in 1944. Today, the Wallside team includes hundreds of people who manufacture windows at the company’s factory in Taylor and install them in homes throughout Michigan and northern Ohio.
