Lyft Begins Offering Free Rides to Cancer Patients in Los Angeles
By Erika Martin
Those battling cancer in several U.S. cities including Los Angeles will be able to commute to and from treatment free of charge with Lyft, the company said this week.
The ride-hailing app is partnering with the American Cancer Society to operate the program, which is effective in L.A. immediately.
Dan Witzling, executive director of the nonprofit, said in a news release that lack of transportation remains one of the largest roadblocks to those with the disease accessing quality health care.
