An earlier version of this article incorrectly described a behavior of crows exposed to crow corpses. Live crows only touch, attack and attempt intercourse with crow corpses, they do not scavenge them. (Actual NYT correction)

Good marketing strategy. There is a lot of hate for TTC closers right now - this would motivate some people to try who would not otherwise.

your ride could cost you $100 if ur going from union to somewhere north on the line! Probably some schmuck will try it and get some large bill :D

10 ride maximum per account

You'll pay anything in excess of $10 (in addition to the first $3.25)

Anyone know if this is stackable with their other promos? (I doubt it?)

this should be rephrased as "Save $6.75 for each ride over $10 (10 rides maximum during specific time window in weekends)"

What's with lyft and all these shady as f--- promos with huge restrictions in the fine print?!
It's not $3.25 to/from any subway station. A ride from finch to union is going to cost a lot more than that since you're on the hook for everything more than $10. False advertising.
Happy Canada Day!

Estimate on Lyft's website for finch-union is $30.
So this "$3.25 to/from any subway station" is actually going to cost $23.50!! That's a HUGE difference.

This promo is pretty misleading, you aren't paying $3.25 for a ride, unless you are literally travelling under 3 blocks.

The minimum ride (go across the street) is about $6/$7. So if you travel under 3 blocks, it could possibly be under $10, which you would pay $3.25 for. Beyond that, you are paying $3.25 + anything above $10.
