No Ride? No Problem. Get To The Polls With Help From Ride Share Companies

Lyft, Uber and Lime will offer free and reduced-price rides to the polls this election day so you can get your vote on.

Get 50% off on your ride to the polls with Lyft.

For many Americans, transportation can be a major barrier to voting. This Midterm Election, Lyft is helping to remove that barrier. On Tuesday, November 6, the on-demand ride-sharing app will add a special promo code to the app allowing ride seekers in certain areas to book a reduced-price ride to and from their polling place. Rides called using the promo code will be offered at 50% off thanks to generous funding by Lyft and Buzzfeed.

Don’t have Lyft? Try Uber.

If a ride seeker doesn’t live in Michigan, Puerto Rico or other US territories, Uber will be offering free rides to underserved areas with a special button on the app. This button will allow Americans to locate their polling place and get to the polls for free with help from generous funding by Uber, #VoteTogether and Democracy Works. Ride seekers who live in communities with more resources will have the opportunity to get $10 off a single ride to the polls on the most affordable Uber option available in his or her city.

Looking for something a little zippier? Lime has options, too.

Lime, the e-scooter, e-bike and shared bike company in Detroit and other cities around the country, will offer free rides to the polls with the code LIME2VOTE18. Free rides to polling locations as far as 30 minutes away are available in more than 100 cities.

Lime is also partnering with Vote.org and I am a voter to keep riders informed. Riders can sign up to get information on the election, resources, updates and reminders on the election.

The Midterm Elections are Tuesday, November 6. However you get to the polls, make your voice heard with your vote.

Remember, your vote matters.
