Well, Lyft is here to cure those late-night munchies.

In an unexpected yet genius cross-marketing campaign, the rideshare company has announced a new partnership with everyone's favorite fourth-meal joint: Taco Bell.

The company shared the news in a blog post Tuesday, writing the new collaboration with Taco Bell will delight consumers "with a unique ride-thru experience."

Lyft riders will be able to select the in-app Taco Mode option to make a pit stop for “the ultimate Taco Bell experience,” including a free Doritos Locos Taco for the first ride, a special menu and more.
