(Rochester, NY) - The Rochester Americans announced today that the team has [lyft-logo-7E411651A1-seeklogo] partnered with Lyft and The Blue Cross Arena to offer a new ridesharing service at the downtown Rochester venue.

"We are pleased to partner with Lyft and the Rochester Americans to offer an alternative to the 400,000-plus fans that visit the arena on an annual basis," said Blue Cross Arena General Manager Jeff Calkins.
