US elections: Lyft lends a hand
Voters went to the polls across the US this week, and companies played a major role to make that happen.
World Economic Forum partner Lyft was among the ride-sharing services supporting the democratic process by heavily discounting rides to voting places.
On Election Day itself, the company provided rides in cars on bikes and scooters at 50% off to encourage voters to get their voices heard.
Lyft also worked with Nike to make it easier for voters to get to the polls for early voting. And their work in this area involved stakeholders from civil society too.
By working with organizations like More Than A Vote, Black Women’s Roundtable and the National Federation of the Blind the company expanded the number of people who could hitch a ride to vote in this election season.
Too bad they can't deliver the results any faster.
