What You Should Know:
– Starting today, anyone going to get their COVID-19 vaccine can get access to a free or discounted Lyft ride.
– The Lyft initiative in partnership with the White House supports Biden Administration’s goal of getting at least one shot in the arms of 70% of U.S. adults by July 4.
– By May 24, riders will be able to get their ride code directly through the Lyft app or website. After providing a few details, users will receive a code they can apply to rides requested in the Lyft app to and from a vaccination site near them.
– Ride codes will cover up to $15 each for two rides, which we expect to cover most, if not all, of a rider’s fares based on our vaccine access rides to date. Ride codes can be used for Lyft rideshare, bike or scooter rides during standard pharmacy operating hours (6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.).
“The vaccine is the key to getting us all moving again, and we’re proud to do our part to move the country forward,” said John Zimmer, co-founder and president of Lyft. “We’ve always believed transportation has the power to improve people’s lives, and this initiative makes that truer than ever. Helping more Americans get vaccinated helps the Lyft community of drivers and riders, and we’re grateful to the Biden Administration for prioritizing access.”
