  • Date Launched: Apr 1, 2019
  • Pilot Project Timeframe: contract until June 2020

Summary

Dakota County has partnered with Lyft to offer flexible, on-demand rides to individuals with disabilities who receive home and community-based services in Dakota County, Minnesota. Through this pilot program, eligible individuals may use Lyft credits, paid through Medicaid waivers, to order rides to/from work and community activities. These rides aim to supplement existing transportation options and make it easier for individuals with disabilities to access jobs and get around independently. The partnership is supported in part by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Human Services. The pilot officially launched on April 1, with service available to 28 eligible riders, and will expand in phases, with the aim of fully launching by the fall of 2019.

Contributed through a partnership between the Shared-Use Mobility CenterITS America and the Federal Transit Administration’s Mobility on Demand Program
