Monument Public Affairs

Public Relations and Stakeholder/Community Engagement

Lyft Lyft, the fastest growing rideshare company in the U.S., has pioneered ridesharing nationwide with a friendly community of drivers utilizing personal vehicles and a commitment to effecting positive change for the future of our cities.

The Monument Group focuses on communicating Lyft’s industry-leading and impactful initiatives related to nationwide and Austin-based partnerships that aim to transform lives through transportation. Our work also highlights the tremendous economic and community impacts the Lyft platform has on Austin and Texas.

The Monument Group has managed a disciplined, comprehensive communications and advocacy strategy as the company entered the Austin market and expanded its footprint in Texas. Our team provides valuable insight into local market and political dynamics, messaging and media counsel and has assisted in the management of a lobby team. We have counseled Lyft as it advocated before Austin’s Transportation Department, City Council, the Austin Bergstrom International Airport and the state legislature, ultimately leading to statewide ridesharing regulations that were signed into law in May of 2017.
