Spectra by Comcast Spectacor, the providers of Venue Management and Food Services & Hospitality to Boardwalk Hall and the Atlantic City Convention Center, has made Lyft the official rideshare partner of the venues. The partnership will allow guests to commute to and from shows conveniently and responsibly.

"We are very excited to announce our partnership with Lyft.  Anything that enhances the event experience at Historic Boardwalk Hall and the Atlantic City Convention Center is something we are interested in offering to our clients and customers" said Spectra’s Jim Wynkoop, General Manager of Historic Boardwalk Hall. 

Both venues have designated Lyft drop-off and pickup locations to ensure a quick and easy experience. Riders will simply be able to find their ride by matching the color on their app to an illuminated color on the ride’s dashboard.

“Summer is one of our busiest seasons down the shore and one of the many reasons why we’ve chosen to partner with Lyft, a safe ride option for all our guests” said Spectra’s Kara Cermanski, Director of Corporate Partnerships at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall and Convention Center. “With Lyft as our official rideshare partner, Boardwalk Hall and the Atlantic City Convention Center are even easier to get to and from all year round, whether for special events or just a great night out.   

“By partnering with these venues we’re able to offer a reliable, convenient, and affordable way to get home safely and responsibly. Previously when events let out, finding your ride among all the people and cars used to be a challenge. We’re making it a lot easier and aim to provide a friendly ride, as well,” said Ann Ferracane, General Manager of Lyft New Jersey.  

Lyft’s partnership with Spectra by Comcast Spectacor also includes: Sun National Bank Center, XFINITY Live!, and the Liacouras Center. 

Boardwalk Hall and the Atlantic City Convention Center are owned and funded by the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA). Spectra by Comcast Spectacor provides both Venue Management and Food Services & Hospitality to Boardwalk Hall and the Atlantic City Convention Center.
