Overview and Program Highlights

Special Promotions

We work closely with Lyft to develop exclusive offers, promotions, and benefits for UC San Diego users that encourage cost savings, promote climate impact goals, and reduce parking congestion.

Lyft FLEX Shared Rides Commute Program

The Lyft FLEX program was developed by our Transportation department to offer shared ride credits at a discounted rate. This added incentive encourages students, faculty, and staff to choose Lyft's more economical, and eco-friendly shared ride option when using Lyft to commute.

Free, Late Night Rides

Associated Students teamed with Lyft to provide subsidized, late-night rides for students. Each quarter students can access a predetermined number of free ride credits (up to $10 each) when they request a late-night ride that begins or ends on campus.

Lyft Business

With a UC San Diego Lyft business account, students, faculty, and staff can simplify expense reporting when traveling on behalf of the University. Lyft business allows travelers to route business ride receipts directly to their work/school inbox, and switch easily between personal and professional rides. 

Lyft Concierge

Designed primarily with UC San Diego Health System in mind, this program allows admins to request, track, and bill 3rd party rides for patients, visitors, and research participants from their desktop. It is a convenient way to support business transportation needs, with no app or smartphone required. Rides can be requested on demand, or scheduled days in advance.

Lyft Events

Lyft Events serves Campus and Health System departments to ensure guests have a convenient ride to and from local university-sponsored events. Ride codes can be purchased in bulk and geofenced for areas to and from the event location.
