MadeInTYO announces new partnership with Lyft

Uber no more.

Artist // YouTube

It looks like “Uber Everywhere” artist MadeInTYO will no longer be using Uber as his source of inspiration, or transportation.

The car service came under fire this past weekend when, instead of joining a strike with New York taxi drivers at John F. Kennedy airport in protest of Donald Trump's travel ban, it only announced it had temporarily turned off its "surge pricing."

Many felt the tweet undermined the protest, keeping in mind that Uber's co-founder and CEO Travis Kalanick agreed in early December to join President Trump’s economic advisory group.

Meanwhile, Logan Green, co-founder and CEO of competitor Lyft took to Twitter to state that he and his company are non-supporters of Trump’s #MuslimBan.

MadeInTyo followed suit, denouncing his allegiance with Uber.

Additionally, Lyft announced that they will be donating $1 million over the next four years to the American Civil Liberties Union to help “defend our constitution.”
