Since day one, Lyft has aimed to help passengers get to and from their destinations safely. And if there's an opportunity to provide safe transportation for thousands of college students, you can bet we'll be there at the drop of a pin. Cue our Lyft and Wildfire partnership at U.C. Berkeley.
Wildfire, a safety app designed by four Cal grads, notifies its users about emergency situations nearby in real time. Users can post directly, contact local emergency parties, and keep in touch with those in the area. And what better way to complete the 'stay-safe package' than with the ability to request a Lyft ride directly through the Wildfire app.
Now through October 14th, U.C. Berkeley students can enjoy 25% off Lyft rides when requested through Wildfire (up to 4 rides total and within zip codes surround the campus; see full detail here). For students who download the app, this means everything from a safe ride home after a late night of studying to a designated driver while out and about. And all at an affordable, currently-paying-for-college price.
Together, Wildfire and Lyft are dedicated to keeping Cal students safe. So at the end the day you can spend more time studying, and less time mapping out your route home. Download and ride today! We'll see you around campus, U.C. Berkeley!
