Lyft Job Access Program – Free/Discounted Rides For Job Training/Interviews/First Three Weeks Of Employment
Lyft has launched a job access program in 35+ cities. Basically the program provides free/discounted rides in these cities for the following purposes:
Rides to/from job training programs
Rides to/from job interviews
Rides to/from the first three weeks of employment, until individuals receive their first paycheck and begin to pay for their own transportation
It’s not immediately clear how to apply for the benefits of this program or what cities are included, it looks like Lyft has partnered with a number of national partners and the program is actually administered by these programs:
Whenever we see companies roll out programs like it’s inevitably followed by people saying the only reason they are doing it is for positive press. Personally I really don’t care why they are doing it, just the fact they are doing it. I consider myself very lucky that I’ve never had to worry about things like transport to job interviews and a new job and think it’s great that Lyft is working on helping those who do.
