Pilot Program Offers Free 'Lyft' Rides To Light Rail Station

CENTENNITAL, Colo. (CBS4) - The City of Centennial is offering free Lyft rides to the Dry Creek Light Rail Station.

The 6-month pilot program will run Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

It's hoped the free rides to the station convince more people to leave their cars home and take public transportation.

"We're looking to improve the quality of life for not only our commuters, for our seniors, for those that can't drive," Centennial Mayor Cathy Noon said. "This first and last mile challenge has been a hindrance for folks being able to use this light rail station."

The program is funded through a public-private partnership.

Users who want to request a free Lyft ride will have to do it through the Go Denver app.
