In response to Hurricane Florence, Lyft is providing free rides and discounts to those in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.

In North Carolina and South Carolina, Lyft is partnering with United Way’s 2-1-1 program. Those evacuating can dial 2-1-1 and receive a ride code for free transportation, up to $15. The offer is valid between now and 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 12.

Lyft says that they are committed to doing their part to help those in need.  The company has donated $25,000 to a Relief Rides program helping those in need move around before the hurricane, as well as partnering with United Way’s 2-1-1 program.

United Way’s 2-1-1 program is dedicated to connecting those in need of help with resources like Food, Housing & Utilities, Child Care & Education Services, Health Care, Job Training, Counseling, Disaster Services and so much more!
