Lyft names Barcocina, Power Plant Live! top destinations in Baltimore

Lyft names Barcocina and Power Plant Live! among Baltimore's top destinations.

Barcocina, the Mexican-American eatery in Fells Point, and Power Plant Live! Are the most popular restaurant and bar destinations in Baltimore — at least among Lyft riders.

The ride-sharing service unveiled Wednesday the winners of its 2016 Lyfties awards, which honor the destinations where Lyft riders are dropped off the most. In addition to its Baltimore awards, Lyft named national winners and top destinations in 23 other service areas.

Baltimore's most-visited event space is M&T Bank Stadium. People hitching a Lyft to a transit stop most often went to Baltimore Penn Station.

Lyft gave Horseshoe Casino Baltimore its "trending destination" award, which recognizes a destination that is quickly gaining drop-offs.

While the awards are based on ridership trends, Lyft declined to provide any data on its Baltimore ridership, such as how many people used the service in 2016. The company, which has been operating in Baltimore since 2013, also declined to provide demographic data about its riders, such as age ranges, which could influence which destinations are most popular.
