Lyft has a new program to help people get to job interviews and to work at a new job. Their Jobs Access Program is a partnership with organizations including the National Down Syndrome Society and United Way with a goal “to close the transportation gap in low-income communities.”
The initiative offers free or discounted rides to job interviews and to the first three weeks of employment at a new job in 35 cities in the U.S. and Canada. In a statement Lyft explains, “For the unemployed, reliable transportation to a job interview or to the first few weeks of work can mean the difference between successful, long-term employment and lost opportunities.”
Guess what y'all? The Tampa area is on the list of cities included in this program! So if reliable transportation is an issue for you, let Lyft help!
