Following is the list of evacuation centers Lyft presently provides rides to:

  • UCLA

A statement issued by Lyft Los Angeles general manager said, “We’re devastated by the fires in Southern California and our hearts go out to those who have been affected. We are currently working with local officials to develop a plan to offer rides to evacuation centers once the roads are clear, and we are focused on the safety of our drivers and Lyft community.”

To reiterate, you just need to enter code LASAFERIDES in the Lyft app when you are hiring a ride, to get the free ride. Stay safe.
