Helping people get rides to vaccination appointments

Lyft has partnered with the White House to increase vaccine access in our communities. Starting May 24, they’re funding free rides (up to $15) each way, to and from vaccination appointments.

How can nonprofits help?

Lyft has two ways to partner with community organizations to help remove transportation as a barrier to accessing vaccines. 

  • Access to free rides (up to $15 each way to and from vaccine sites) for all: Starting on Monday May 24 and while supplies last, Lyft users will be able to open their app, click on a banner that will direct them to answer a few screening questions via a webform, and get a code they can enter to get a discount on their rides to/from tens of thousands of vaccination sites. Each rider will receive two free rides (up to $15 off each), usable on Lyft’s bikes, scooters, or rideshare services.
  • Partnerships for free ride support to/from vaccines: If nonprofits are in need of more than $15 worth of free ride credit support to and from vaccine sites, they can contact Gracie Geremia (PNW Community Engagement Lead) at to discuss partnership opportunities.
