Wallside Windows wants to make sure baseball fans have a ride home from opening day festivities in Detroit. Michigan’s #1 window manufacturer will once again provide a half-off “Smart Ride With Wallside” for fans who use the rideshare service Lyft to get home responsibly on Thursday, April 4, 2019.

“At Wallside Windows, we love the Tigers and we love opening day,” said Chief of Staff Adam Blanck. “We want to make sure everyone who celebrates our team gets home smartly and safely.”

Fans departing Comerica Park will be able to enter a promo code in the Lyft app before requesting a ride. Wallside Windows will pay for half the cost of their ride home.

“For the last two years, Wallside has provided hundreds of Tigers fans with a safe ride home from Opening Day at half the cost. When those fans watch games on TV, they hear us promote half-off deals on the replacement windows we make, so this seemed like the right thing for us to do again this year. We’re glad we can provide a safe ride home from the ballpark at half off and we hope even more fans take us up on the offer this year,” explained Wallside Windows Vice President Stanford Blanck.

Complete details of the Safe Ride With Wallside program are available on the Wallside Windows website: . Wallside will cover half off your Lyft ride home, up to a $15 maximum credit.

“Lyft is proud to provide a responsible ride whenever you need one and we’re thrilled to partner with Wallside again this year to make this an option for fans on opening day,” said Elliot Darvick, Lyft’s General Manager for Detroit.

Now celebrating their 75th anniversary, Wallside Windows is a family owned business that started in Detroit in 1944. Today, the Wallside team includes hundreds of people who manufacture windows at the company’s factory in Taylor and install them in homes throughout Michigan and northern Ohio.
