The other part of Starbucks-Lyft deal: employee rides

Starbucks employees may be getting a low-priced lift to work from Lyft as part of the two brands’ just-announced partnership, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz revealed yesterday.

In a conference call with financial analysts, Schultz indicated that aspects of the deal have not yet been finalized. For instance, “later this year we'll be testing the possibility of introducing a convenient and cost effective transportation benefit to Starbucks employee partners in conjunction with Lyft,” he said.

Schultz did not provide further details.
