You will receive two separate invitations to your UMB email inbox from Lyft Business on Tuesday with instructions.
The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is launching two new on-demand ride programs in a partnership with Lyft on Tuesday, Nov. 24. The services — Lyft On-Demand Shuttle and Lyft Ride Smart at UMB — are available to all current UMB students, faculty, and staff but you must opt-in to participate.
You will receive two separate invitations to your UMB email inbox from Lyft Business on Nov. 24. You can sign up and participate in both discount programs, but you must opt in to each of the programs and use your UMB email address when signing up. If you have a Lyft account associated with a different email address, Lyft will allow you to have two email addresses on your account. If you have any issues signing up, please contact the UMB Help Desk via email or at 410-706-HELP.
Lyft On-Demand Shuttle will offer 40 percent off 16 rides per month, up to $4 off per ride, on Standard Lyft rides only. It will be available 6 a.m.-11 a.m. and 3 p.m.-11 p.m. Monday to Friday. Rides must start and end at a designated UM shuttle stop.
Lyft Ride Smart at UMB will offer $5 off up to three rides per month, valid on Standard Lyft rides only. It will be available 7 a.m.-1 a.m. daily. Rides must start and end within the program service area.
These programs are intended to better serve the UMB community with affordable, on-demand options, given that the UM shuttle and the UMB Police Department’s Safe Ride program are on hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic. They will be available to the UMB community as long as funding permits and are subject to change or early termination. You will be notified about any changes in the programs should they arise.
Visit the Lyft On-Demand Shuttle page and the Lyft Ride Smart at UMB page for more information. If you have any questions, please contact Tony Green (email@example.com) for Lyft On-Demand Shuttle questions and Lt. Matthew Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org) for Lyft Ride Smart at UMB questions.
