Subsidized Lyft Rides for Users with Smartphones

Recently the Brookline Council on Aging received a grant from the National Council on Aging to pilot a rideshare subsidy program through Lyft.  There is currently funding for more users.  Participants receive four subsidized rides of up to $10 per month with Lyft.  The rider pays the first $2 and the coupon pays the next $10.  Anything above $12 is paid by the rider.  Training is available for those who may need support with the Lyft app.  The program is currently limited to income eligible seniors 60 and over (individual $62,450 maximum, couple $71,400).  Contact Maria Foster at 617-730-2644 for more information.
