CHICAGO -- The rideshare company Lyft surprised passengers today with holiday gifts.

It was Lyft Gift Roulette and the company filled five of its Chicago cars with gifts yesterday and today.  If someone who wanted a ride happened to be matched with one of those special cars, they got their pick from the grab bag of gifts.

Anything from gift cards to an Xbox was up for grabs.

Riders could also give back if they tipped their driver 5 dollars or more, Paypal matched it and donating it to Meals on Wheels America.
