(Reuters) - Roadside assistance provider Agero Inc said on Tuesday it would partner with ride hailing company Lyft Inc to provide rides for consumers whose cars are disabled and require a tow assistance.

The service will provide consumers, whose vehicles require a tow, a complimentary Lyft ride from their breakdown site to their destination, the company said here in a statement.

Based in Medford, Massachusetts, Agero serves about 115 million car owners every year in partnerships with auto manufacturers, insurance carriers and others.

Lyft had 30.7 million riders and 1.9 million drivers in more than 300 cities in the U.S. and Canada last year.
