WORCESTER – Downtown Worcester and its surrounding neighborhoods are well-known for its lack of available [and affordable] parking options.

On-demand ride-hailing apps like Lyft and Uber have seemingly thrived in the Worcester area over the past several years as any easier and less expensive alternative to get around the city.

ThisWeekinWorcester.com reached out to both companies to ask where people in Worcester wanted to go the most.

In a statement released to TWIW, a spokesperson from Lyft said, “Lyft is committed to providing affordable, reliable, and sustainable transportation options to the Worcester community. Lyft is more than happy to offer an efficient and convenient way for residents to get around.”

Customers can use the Lyft fare estimator for a general idea of pricing in the area.

Today, we are releasing the top 5 destinations in Worcester for people that use the Lyft app.

Top Destinations Include:
  1. Union Station 


2. Quinsigamond Community College

3. Worcester State University

4. Worcester Airport

5. Auburn Mall
