SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

The city has entered into a partnership with the ride-sharing service Lyft.
Dana Point announced it will begin a public-private partnership with Lyft on Oct. 1 to enhance public safety and promote local businesses.
“This creative agreement, spearheaded by our City’s Economic Development Department, will have significant benefits to the residents and businesses of Dana Point,” said Dana Point Mayor John Tomlinson in a release.
Lyft works when a user downloads the app on their phone, chooses their destination, and a driver picks them up.
The agreement will allow new users to receive up to $20 in ride credits, and $10 for every new rider will be donated to the Ocean Institute.
At participating restaurants throughout the city, if customers show their Lyft receipt, they can receive a 10 percent discount. The participating restaurants include Jack’s, Craft House, The Brig, Bonjour Café, The Point, Luxe, Stillwater, Waterman’s, 180BLU, enoSTEAK, 33North, AVEO, Club 19, Stonehill Tavern, The Vue Restaurant, Overvue Lounge, Doheny Surf and MoQuila.
The program begins October 1. To access Lyft, visit www.lyft.com/invite/danapoint, download the app and enter DANAPOINT into the payment section.
