Designed by the brand creatives behind Virgin America, the Glowstache is the first Lyft icon to light up streets nationwide. Each one helps increase awareness of Lyft in your city, meaning more demand for your rides, and no chance of getting lost in a crowd. The status symbol was produced solely for top Lyft drivers. Like its three-foot ancestor, the Carstache, it’s now retired while we design the next big thing — but if you’re lucky, you might just spot one on the road.”
