But Google Maps doesn’t lie. Tucked into the forests of Park Township in Lake of the Woods County is a 23-acre stand of red pine trees in the shape of Minnesota. It was the work of DNR forestry veteran Bill Lockner from the late 1980s,

Lyft Ridesharing Service Gaining Popularity in the Twin Cities


Did you pound too many Grape Apes at the bar and don’t feel like riding home in a smelly cab? Want to avoid paying through the ass while parking your car at the airport? Don’t own a car, but need a quick ride someplace? Lyft is your friend with a car whenever you need one. Lyft has arrived in Minneapolis/St. Paul. Just download the app, tap a button and a friendly driver will be on the way. You get to see a picture of the car and driver, and watch from your phone as the Lyft approaches your location. Passengers sit in the front seat where they can charge their phone and choose the music. There’s also a built in rating system to maintain good service. You’ll also never have to worry about having enough cash because all payments are made with a credit card in the app.

- Download the Lyft app HERE
- A teal balloon on a map shows where you are
- Black cars on the map show drivers near you
- Request a Lyft and get connected with the closest available driver

Unlike a taxi there’s no set fees, but rather a suggested donation at the end of the ride.

Right now, readers of Duck Duck Gray Duck in any city where Lyft is can receive a $25 credit just by entering code “DUCKDUCK”. That’s worth a share and a like right?
