United Way of Central Maryland is connecting 211 callers who lack transportation to Lyft rides
United Way of Central Maryland is one of the nationwide partnership locations for Ride United, which is an initiative designed to help overcome barriers to transportation, the organization said this month. This opens up connections to free Lyft rides to 211 Maryland United Way Helpline callers in Greater Baltimore who don’t have access to other forms of transportation.
Ride United launched in September 2019 with initial support from General Motors and Lyft. It leverages the strengths of local United Ways and the 211 Helpline network to meet transportation needs by providing free Lyft rides to eligible 211 callers.
