Help During the East Coast & Midwest Heat Wave

Help During the East Coast & Midwest Heat Wave

In response to the heat wave impacting large swaths of the East Coast and Midwest, Lyft is committed to doing our part to help those in need. We’re activating our Wheels For All program to help those affected by the heat move to local cooling centers and stay safe. 

Across several of the impacted cities, we’re providing free and discounted rides to select* cooling centers in order to help people get relief from the heat. Rides can be accessed using city-specific codes valid for 2 rides, up to $15 each, from now until 7/21 at 11:59 p.m. for each city’s time zone while rides are available. We advise checking cooling center operational hours before visiting the site.

As safety is fundamental to Lyft, we are continuing to monitor the conditions and communicate with Lyft drivers, riders and government officials. As always, we look forward to providing rides to those who need them.
