Be a Lyft Driver with Us
WE EMPOWER PEOPLE
We are ConnectAbility of MN. We are a non-profit that provides services to people with disabilities and senior communities around Minnesota. We also work with local agencies to support their mission.
SOLVING THE TRANSPORTATION CRISIS
We understand the lack of transportation in the rural areas of the state is causing a transportation crisis. There are hundreds of friends and neighbors in communities that have no transportation options either public or taxi. Many people can not or chose not to drive and this leaves them without basic need met, such as the ability to have reliable access to food, medical appointments, visiting friends or relative or even the ability to secure a job. Without transportation they are not able to be productive and engaged members of their own communities.
Create a network of drivers for riders
Through our connection with Lyft we are able develop a driver network in rural MN. Our drivers will be a part of a ground breaking, never been done program to literally save peoples lives. This is a pioneering effort to solve a crisis. Currently Lyft only supports metropolitan areas with dense populations and we are looking to provide this opportunity to your neighborhoods, cities and counties for the first time. Your neighborhoods in rural Minnesota are places Lyft never imagined going. We have developed a grass roots approach to solving this crisis and you can be a part of it. We may not have a lot of money or ability to create a huge transportation infrastructure, but we have the ability to connect people with other people who need them.
BECOMING A PART OF THE SOLUTION
Be a driver
- We have created a training presentation that will walk you through the process of signing up with Lyft. Once you have signed up and completed this simple process we can work together to make sure you are able to engage with riders the way you want to:
- one on one
- meeting new people
- being available for anyone
- or making this a part time job, you make an average of 70% of the fare
We are working with social service organizations, county case managers, and word of mouth support to build this new program.
We are hoping you can help us spread the word. Tell your friends and neighbors. There are so many people willing to help and so many that need help. Be a driver and a voice for this great program that will change lives.
