Be a Driver with Lyft

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

The lack of transportation in the rural areas of Minnesota is causing a transportation crisis. Hundreds of friends and neighbors have little or no transportation options, either public or taxi services. Many cannot or choose not to drive and are left without basic needs such as having reliable access to food, to get to medical appointments, visit friends or relatives or even the ability to secure a job. Lacking transportation, they are unable to e productive and engaged members of their own communities.  

OUR SOLUTION

Create a network of drivers for riders

We are working with other organizations to develop Lyft driver networks throughout rural MN. This pioneering effort brings a solution to the transportation crisis. We are looking to provide opportunities for rides from Lyft to neighborhoods that may be seeing this service for the first time. As a driver with Lyft, you can be part of solving this crisis. Making connections to build a network of drivers using Lyft will bring rides to the people who need them.  

BECOMING A PART OF THE SOLUTION

Be a driver

We have created a training presentation to walk you through the process of signing up with Lyft. You will then be free to engage with riders the way you want to:

    • Being available for anyone
    • Or as a part time job, making an average of 70% of the fare

We are bringing this opportunity to social service organizations, county case managers, and word of mouth to build and grow this new program.

You can help us spread the word. Tell your friends and neighbors. People are willing to serve and there are so many that need help. Be a driver for this great program that will change lives.
