The Phoenix Public Transit Department and Lyft have partnered to launch the First Mile Last Mile campaign, a six month pilot program aimed at facilitating commuter access to local bus lines. Through this program Lyft is providing service, as of October 18, to and from bus stops in the northern and southern-most parts of Phoenix, Arizona at a reduced rate. Specifically, riders can use the code TRANSITPHX to receive a 20% discount on trips to or from the over 500 participating bus stops. Additionally, new Lyft passengers will be eligible for $5 discounts on their first four rides. Through this pilot program the City of Phoenix hopes to make public transit more accessible.
