Lyft Gives Year-End Love to Its Drivers Who’ve Truly Changed People’s Lives

What a way to say thanks

 “Thank you, Lamont”
introduces us to a Seattle-based driver who’s given over 23,000 rides. He’s the sort of chauffeur who’s probably always in a good mood and down to chat, who’s learned to say “a pleasure to meet you” in several languages, and who, when asked what his favorite place is, replies that it’s “the world.”

It turns out hundreds of people have written to Lyft about Lamont. So, in exchange, Lyft gives him something special.

“Thank you, Paloma” has a different feel, and features a woman from Las Vegas. She loves art, and dreams of sharing that love with her children—a few of whom are autistic and highly visual—in Paris someday.

In a surprising turn, we discover she was among the drivers who drove toward the mass shooting on the Strip in October, and rescued a couple—one of whom, the husband Billy, had been shot in the back—before returning to help more people.
It’s Billy, who survived because of her efforts, who gives Paloma her gift. Maybe you can guess what it is.
