MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Lyft has started a new program offering free rides to and from job interviews.
According to information from Lyft, the Jobs Access Program will debut in 35 cities across the U.S. It will provide:
· Rides to/from job training programs
· Rides to/from job interviews
· Rides to/from the first three weeks of employment, until individuals receive their first paycheck and begin to pay for their own transportation
A study by Lyft found that 44 percent of rides start or end in low-income areas. It also showed Lyft passengers saved 178 million hours compared to other transportation modes.
“We are focused on communities that stand to benefit most from short-term transportation support, ranging from veterans to individuals with disabilities,” Lyft representatives stated.
The ride-sharing program partnered with 10 organizations to make the Jobs Access Program a reality.
