“On March 24, those around the country will join March for Our Lives demonstrations to demand that their lives and safety become a priority. This movement has been led by student organizers from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which less than a month and a half ago was the site of one of the nation’s deadliest school massacres.
Earlier this month, Lyft Co-Founders John Zimmer and Logan Green shared their support for the civic engagement these students have inspired by offering free Lyft rides to marches around the country.
“Your bravery and intelligence have provided a renewed and much needed hope for our future. We are incredibly grateful for the example you are setting,” they wrote in a letter to the students.
If you are attending a March for Our Lives event in one of the 50 cities identified below, we want to help you get there with a free Lyft ride. We’ve partnered with the March For Our Lives organizers to ensure that our commitment of up to $1.5 million in free rides will have the most impact on their efforts — and yours.
How it will work:
- If you are attending one of the 50 marches listed below, claim your free ride by RSVPing to the rally at www.marchforourlives.com/events.
- On Friday, March 23, ride codes will be distributed to those who have RSVP’d through www.marchforourlives.com/events.
- If you aren’t able to RSVP, ride codes to these marches will be available at www.lyft.com/MFOL starting Saturday morning.
- Once you have received a code, enter it in the ‘promos’ tab of your Lyft app.
- For the code to work, you must enter the official March for Our Lives rallypoint as your destination. You’ll find rallypoint details in your app once you enter your code in the ‘promos’ tab.
- Anyone riding who is under 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult.
- We are only able to support free rides up to $1.5 million, so it’s important to RSVP ahead of time to get a code before that commitment is met.
We thank the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for inspiring us all to act.
