Lyft Toyota Mirai event

As mentioned, the Lyft Toyota Mirai event is coming up.  SAE Alberta post here:

Our usual registration link will redirect you to their sign-up page:

I need to make a correction.  The Mirai fleet is not open to the general public for driving.  It is strictly available to the Metro Vancouver Lyft drivers.  But given the low barrier to registration as a Lyft driver, these vehicles are still fairly-accessible.

Tune in to hear some more!

Upcoming Formula UBC technical event, and SAE Alberta Toyota Hydrogen Fuel Cell Lyft technical event notice

Reminder to register for and attend the Monday Formula UBC technical presentation event, at 6:00 PM.  Registration link here:

Also, Lyft, along with Toyota, have announced a partnership to operate a fleet of hydrogen fuel cell Mirai vehicles for a ride-sharing program, right here in the Metro Vancouver area.  Please note, this is not to be confused with Lyft's better-known ride-hailing program.  These Toyota Mirai vehicles will be available for short-term rental, for your own driving and experience of an electrically-motivated, hydrogen-fueled propulsion.  SAE Alberta was fortunate enough to land a technical talk and we will jointly promote this exciting online event, May 19, 6:00 PM Pacific, with them. Official announcement here:
