Lyft was founded in June 2012 by Logan Green and John Zimmer to improve people’s lives with the world’s best transportation. Lyft is the fastest growing rideshare company in the U.S. and is available to 95 percent of the US population as well as in Ontario, Canada. Lyft is preferred by drivers and passengers for its safe and friendly experience, and its commitment to effecting positive change for the future of our cities. Through our partnership, we are launching a pilot program to provide limited free rides to people with specific healthcare, employment, veterans and disaster relief needs. 2-1-1 specialists in pilot markets will provide Lyft rides to callers in need. 2-1-1 is a free, nationwide service that connects people to essential services in their community, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by phone, text and on the web.
