Uber's promotion includes two free rides up to $20 in fare each way, and can be used by following these steps:
- Open your app and tap “Payment” in your app menu
- Scroll down to Promotions
- Tap “Add Promo Code”
- Enter code DORIANRELIEF then tap “Add”
- Select any of the state-approved Florida evacuation shelters listed at FloridaDisaster.org/info, or your local county website.
Lyft's promotion is for two free rides up to $15 each, through their Wheels for All program, which can be used by registering your phone number at www.lyft.com/invite/DORIANRELIEF, and will allow you to use code "DORIANRELIEF" to evacuate to local shelters between now and Sept. 15 at 11:59 p.m.
Remember to tip your drivers extra through the app or, even better, in cash. Uber and Lyft pledged to spend $60 million together to fight California legislation that would consider their drivers employees rather than independent contractors, so your driver could use some extra gratitude as the storm looms.
We want to ensure that our communities in Florida are able to access reliable transportation for evacuations from #HurricaneDorian2019. We're offering rides to local shelters through our Wheels for All program.— Lyft (@lyft) September 1, 2019
