Lyft's top Boston drop-offs of 2015 - Metro US

Lyft’s top Boston drop-offs of 2015


Lyft, the ride-sharing company, on Tuesday released a year-end tally of the hot spots for riders in 2015.

They call them the “Lyftie Awards,”and many of the winners are what one might expect: destinations right in the sweet spot of millennial allure and inconvenience via public transit.

The company doesn’t make its data public, so it’s not clear exactly how many trips Bostonians took to those winning locations, a spokesman told Metro.

The award for most-visited bar went to the Harpoon Brewery, located at the southern end of the Seaport.

Lyft-riders’ most popular event destination? Fenway Park, which is easy to get to, but trains to-and-from are frequently packed. And loud.

Other hot spots: East Boston’s Jeffries Point, which Lyft said is “in high demand.”

Most-visited restaurant: The Brahmin

Transit hub: South Station. (Nationwide, Lyft also said most of its drop-offs were at public transit stops.)

The “Lyftie” for trending Boston destination: Harvard Square.

“Of all the squares in Boston, Harvard is the most requested drop off,” a news release from the company said.

On the national level, Harvard made the list for most-visited business school.

Lyft also claims its passengers “pumped more than $12.6 million into the local economy” by patronizing Boston businesses, according to an emailed statement.
