If you ain’t afraid of no ghost, then you can take a ride in the Ecto-1 this weekend.

Lyft will be offering rides in the iconic car from Ghostbusters to fans in Boston and other cities across the nation on Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 2, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. All you have to do is select the “Ghost Mode” on the Lyft app and a driver will pick you up for a free ride.

In addition to cruising around town in the ghost-busting mobile, passengers will have a chance to bring home some cool swag, from Hi-C Ecto Coolers to Ghostbusters-themed Twinkies. Two lucky riders will also be selected to attend the Ghostbusters world premiere in Los Angeles on Saturday, July 9.

Unfortunately, jumpsuits and proton packs aren’t included.

“Up until now, you had to be a Ghostbuster to catch a ride in the Ecto-1,” Sony Pictures president of theatrical marketing Dwight Caines said in a statement. “In this amazing collaboration with Lyft, moviegoers all across the country will be able to experience that feeling of being a Ghostbuster. No matter the destination, Lyft riders using Ghost Mode will be arriving in style.”

The special Ghostbusters offer will be available in New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C. as well.
