Lyft has updated their rider app to donate to hurricane victims


Staff member
Yesterday, Lyft updated their rider app to allow riders to opt in to 'round up and donate'.

"Help those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Opt into Round Up & Donate (under Settings) and we'll round up your fares to the nearest dollar, and donate the difference to the American Red Cross. Available through September 30th."

As a part time driver, I haven't given a Lyft ride since the update. Let us know how it goes. I saw the driver app got an update also, but it was the general 'improvements' line.
