The ride-sharing company Lyft is giving job-seekers one less thing to worry about by offering free rides to people who are going to job interviews or job training in a new program called “Jobs Access.”
In a blog post the company explained their Jobs Access Program “aims to close short-term transportation gaps related to employment access and job training” adding:
“For the unemployed, reliable transportation to a job interview or to the first few weeks of work can mean the difference between successful, long-term employment and lost opportunities.”
The initiative is pretty impressive.
Not only is Lyft offering riders in over 35 cities free rides to their job interview or job training, the program is offering people rides in both directions and continuing the offer for a period of up to three weeks:
“Rides to/from the first three weeks of employment, until individuals receive their first paycheck and begin to pay for their own transportation”
This is both very generous and a great way to earn loyal customers in the future, while simultaneously ensuring that those customers will be able to afford a ride-sharing service because they are gainfully employed.
So Lyft has a new program that will pick you up and take you to a job interview for free, and if you get hired they will give you up to three weeks of free rides until you get paid. There have been times in my life this would have been a game changer. If you need help,here's help
