We’re always on the lookout for ways to provide more safe rides to people who need them.
That’s why we’re teaming up with It's On Us, a White House-led initiative to end sexual assault, for a second time. Together, we’re helping thousands of college students get a free rides, so they don’t need to worry about finding a safe ride home after going out. They always have a ride a few minutes away, in the tap of a button.
Rebecca Kaplan, Director of It’s On Us, understands the role of reliable transportation in preventing sexual assault from personal experience.
“Late one night in DC, a friend and I were out at a bar when a man approached us and aggressively tried to take my friend to the other end of the bar to be alone with her. Friends don’t leave friends behind and so I urged her not to follow him into the dark corner at the other end of the bar. We left and he followed us outside — it was raining and there were few cars on the street. I immediately ordered a Lyft that arrived within minutes to take us out of the situation.”
We’re proud to take a step forward with the It's On Us Team to tackle this important issue. If you want to join efforts to end sexual assault, sign the It's On Us Pledge.
