With B.C.’s election day fast approaching, even one of the region’s ride-hailing apps is getting in on the act.
Lyft is providing Metro Vancouverites with a discounted ride to get to polling locations in the region, beginning on Oct. 15 for advance voting and ending at 8 p.m. on Oct. 24, election day.
During those dates and times, Lyft is offering access to a discounted ride to get to any polling location or dropbox.
Using the code VOTEBC2020, Metro Vancouverites will receive 50 per cent off a Lyft ride (up to $10) to a polling location.
“Transportation should never be a barrier to getting to the polls, no matter how you choose to cast your ballot,” said Peter Lukomskyj, general manager for Lyft in B.C. “At Lyft, we’re pleased to be helping facilitate these crucial rides for people in Metro Vancouver as they exercise their right to vote.”
