A little more than a week ago I wrote about Uber offering free rides to vote on November 6th. Since the elections are three weeks away, I figured that I should check Lyft to see if they had a similar offer. Here is what Lyft if offering on November 6th:
Lyft is offering 50% rides across the country and free rides to underserved communities.
- 50% rides will work with Vote.org, Turbovote, and Nonprofit Vote to distribute codes to people that need them. Lyft’s software will be integrated with local polling places.
- For those underserved communities (identified by a Pew study as those who make less than $30,000 a year or are ethnic minorities) Lyft will provide free rides through nonpartisan, nonprofit partners.
While I have had some issues with Lyft in the past, I think this is cool for them to get citizens to the polls. I do, however, find it funny that even when it is for a good cause, Lyft and Uber still find a way to compete. Please get out and vote.
