Pride Month is here, and Lyft Portland will be celebrating with the local LGBTQ community all month long!
This June, we’ll be offering 40% off two rides to nonprofits in Portland that provide support to our LGBTQ community day in and day out. These include: Basic Rights Oregon, The Q Center, Outside In, Cascade Aids Project, New Avenues for Youth, and SAGE Metro Portland. The services these nonprofits offer the community are invaluable, and it’s our hope that by discounting rides to their locations they’ll become more accessible.
The 42nd Portland Pride Festival officially kicks off on June 17th, and we’re excited be the Preferred Rideshare Partner of the event. We’ll be at the Waterfront Festival on both Saturday and Sunday and will march alongside 50+ LGBTQ Lyft community members during the Pride Parade on Sunday. Swing by our booth inside the festival for Pride-themed swag galore! During the parade, look out for a Lyft-wrapped car along with throngs of people clothed in pink, marching down the streets of Portland.
For all those passengers joining the festivities, we recommend walking 1-2 blocks away from Waterfront Park for easier pick-ups. See you there!
