Watch: Lyft Donates $1.5m to its Relief Rides Program

Lyft wants to help people who need rides to job interviews and medical appointments. Lyft said it’s working “with strong local and national partners” and will “expand these partnerships to support a diverse array of people, depending on the needs of each local community.”

Lyft has already partnered with New Orleans-based Youth Empowerment Project to help people get to appointments and job interviews. This is one of many programs that Lyft has announced, riding the coattails of a multi-million-dollar investment in carbon offsets.

“People need help beyond times of crisis. There are those with acute transportation needs every single day.” Lyft said it gave 375.5 million rides in 2017, up 130 percent from 2016.
