An educated choice for transportation

More than 100 colleges and universities have joined up with us to create transportation programs that prioritize safety and cut costs. Connect with our team to learn how Lyft can help out on – and off – your campus.


Safety's always first

Regular background checks. In-app emergency services. Real-time, shareable ride maps. We prioritize safety, and want our riders to know it as soon as they get in a car.

Reduced parking demand

When riders use Lyft, it cuts down on the number of people who need to park. That can make your campus an easier place to visit.

A smaller carbon footprint

We work closely with campuses to help them achieve their sustainability goals, and invest in carbon offsets so that every Lyft ride is carbon-neutral.


Late night rides

We’ll work with your campus to create a late-night program that ensures students, faculty, and staff can get where they need to go even after buses, trains, and shuttles have stopped running.

Bikes and scooters

Hopping on a bike or scooter is an affordable (and super-fun) way to get around. We’ll partner with you to design a program tailored to your institution’s needs.

Shuttle service support

Campus shuttle programs are a great way to get around – but shuttles can’t be everywhere at once. We help supplement existing programs, to bridge the gap between your main campus and satellite facilities.

First mile/last mile

Make travel easier by helping your riders connect seamlessly to buses, trains, and other forms of transit they already use to get around.

Programs built for your campus

Lyft Pass

You can give ride credits to students, faculty, and staff to help them get where they're going.

Lyft Concierge

Set up rides on behalf of your passengers. Send a ride immediately, schedule one for later, or let passengers request rides on their own.

Lyft Business Portal

Your go-to destination for insights into your institution's ride spend, and matters involving policy adherence and duty of care.
