Do you have a job interview coming up? Are you starting a new job soon? You might qualify for free Lyft rides!
As part of a $50 million annual commitment to improving transportation infrastructure and sustainability initiatives, Lyft announced that it will be providing free rides for people trying to get jobs. This new program will cover rides to and from job training programs, interviews, and rides to and from work during a person's first three weeks of employment.
However, getting your free Lyft ride isn’t as easy as just opening the app and getting a free ride. Instead you will have to go through one of the non-profit groups that Lyft has partnered with for this new initiative. Some of the top non-profits partnering with Lyft are United Way, Goodwill and Dream Corps.
Here is a complete list of Lyft’s free ride partners.
Each link above will provide you with more information on how to claim your free rides. Generally, job seekers will work with one of these non-profits directly to have a free ride booked on their behalf.
Lyft claims this new program is aimed to help at-need jobseekers. According to a recent Lyft survey, 35 percent of Lyft users don't own a personal vehicle and 44 percent of the company’s rides start or end in low-income areas. Lyft is hoping to help some of these people.
