FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COMMON COURTESY EXPANDS PARTNERSHIP TO LYFT
Common Courtesy, an Atlanta based Non-Profit, has successfully provided over 3,000 individual rides to people without access to local transportation in the last two years through a partnership with Uber.
Today, we are excited to announce that we are expanding this partnership to include Lyft, also leading ride-share provider! “We are very excited to be partnering with Common Courtesy and expanding their coverage area,” explains Gyre Renwick, Head of Healthcare Enterprise Partnerships at Lyft. “Our team at Lyft is very committed to serving our aging, low-income and at-risk population and we feel that our mission and values align nicely with Common Courtesy and the great work they do.” says Renwick.
We will move forward working with both companies in providing rides to those who need it most. Our founder, Bob Carr, said on the expansion, “Lyft will allow us to expand our reach to as many people as possible. In particular, we look forward to how this new partnership will allow us to expand outside of Georgia.”
At the moment, we are working on several potential expansions throughout the country. More details will be released as they develop.
