To celebrate Black History Month, ride-hailing company Lyft is offering one free ride to black-owned businesses, history museums, and memorials in New York City. According to the company, 82 percent of Lyft drivers identify with a minority group, which makes the company “see the importance of celebrating the diversity that we have right around us.”
During the month of February, riders will get one free ride up to $10 to local sites significant to black culture, including the African Burial Ground National Monument, Louis Armstrong House Museum, MoCADA, Studio Museum in Harlem, and the Apollo Theater.
Riders can use the code BHMNYC19 anytime this month for one free ride up to $10.
“At Lyft, we believe in recognizing, celebrating, and supporting the contributions of incredible Black women and men throughout history and within our communities today,” the company wrote in a blog post.
Other areas participating in the area include Jersey City and Long Island. Get the codes for those two cities and see the full list of locations here.
