Get Home Safely with Lyft

Get Home Safely with Lyft

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.
