Lyft drivers are about to get a new perk in San Diego, where the ride-hailing giant has opened a large facility for its workers to recharge from long days on the road.

The 35,000 square-foot “driver center” is mostly a tech-enabled auto shop, where drivers can get discounted maintenance and repair services for their vehicles. But the site is also furnished with comfortable lounge spots, snacks and Wi-Fi, giving drivers a place to take a break from their work.

The facility is in the former Toys “R” Us building at 1240 West Morena Blvd., but after Lyft’s remodel, it’s hardly recognizable. Designed to resemble a California tech office more than an auto shop, the driver center features red brick interiors, white subway tile and pastel pink fluorescent signs.
