Green Country voters can utilize discounted rideshares to get to polling places

If you need a ride to the polls on Election Day, rideshare companies are stepping up to offer discounted or free rides to polling places.

Lime is waiving its fees for scooter rides for those planning to vote in the midterm elections. The company’s Lime to the Polls campaign began in 2018.

Lime first makes sure that riders are registered to vote and that they plan to vote. They then provide a free ride to and from polling places.

Lyft is offering a special of 50 percent off up to $10, during polling hours to and from election sites. Lyft’s voting access program was created in 2015 to prevent transportation barriers.

Discount codes will be available to Lyft riders to use during voting hours in every time zone. Riders can preload or activate the code directly in the Lyft app or in the apps of participating local bikeshare systems.
