Attending a March for Our Lives Event? Lyft Will Take You There for Free
On March 24, students and families will take to the streets to demand legislative action to address gun violence and school safety in an event called “March for Our Lives.”
If you’re hoping to get to one of the marches but are having trouble with transportation, there’s no need to worry.
On March 24, in support of March for Our Lives, Lyft is giving free rides to families attending one of the 50 official events across the country.
We already loved Lyft for its sweet driver perks, but now we’re superfans.
While there are more than 800 marches taking place Saturday, to get a free ride you must be attending one of the 50 official events listed on Lyft’s blog.
To get your free ride, visit March for Our Lives’ event page and RSVP for an eligible event. Ride codes will be sent out March 23 to all eligible RSVPs.
If you don’t receive a ride code or are unable to RSVP, ride codes will be available here starting Saturday morning.
To redeem your free Lyft ride, enter the code in the promos tab in the Lyft app. For the code to work, you must set your destination as one of the official March for Our Lives rally points.
Don’t worry — rally point details will be in your app once you enter your ride code.
The fine print: Ride codes cover rides up to $15, and anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Lyft is only covering up to $1.5 million — or around 100,000 rides — so RSVP to your city’s event to secure yours.
It may be too late to drive for Lyft in this event, but if you want to participate in more efforts like this and potentially make some extra cash, think about signing up to drive for Lyft or Uber.
