FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. — In the next several months, Hyundai dealers across the country that subscribe to Hailer service through CDK Global Inc. can give millions of owners easy access to Lyft rides while their vehicles are being serviced, the company announced.

“Hailer provides dealerships with greater efficiencies,” said Mahesh Shah, executive vice president, chief product and technology officer, CDK Global. “We are excited that Hyundai is providing its customers with Lyft convenience at participating dealerships with CDK Drive, while affording its dealers seamless backend integration. We look forward to enabling improved customer experiences through this comprehensive dealer solution.”

Through Hailer, billed as a “first-of-its-kind” application developed by CDK in partnership with Lyft, participating Hyundai dealers that subscribe to Hailer service through CDK can now help eliminate transportation barriers by providing Lyft rides for customers, which can either be offered free of charge or at a cost that can be automatically added to the customer’s service bill for seamless payment at each individual dealership’s discretion, all according to the announcement.

“At Lyft, we’re passionate about providing transportation experiences that enhance customer satisfaction and create a streamlined, more cost-efficient solution for our business partners,” said Gyre Renwick, vice president, Lyft Business, “Hailer has the potential to disrupt and evolve the auto dealership industry, and we’re excited to partner with Hyundai to introduce this solution at scale for participating dealerships across the country.”
