MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Lyft announced Tuesday its drivers will offer free rides to warming centers for those seeking refuge from the cold.

The company is partnering with Greater Twin Cities United Way 2-1-1 to provide two rides for up to $25 each for those escaping extreme cold.

Riders can use the code MSPJAYDEN19 to access the rides through 11:59 p.m. Friday.

    It is so amazing that you are giving rides to shelter’s, but I’m wondering if you understand that most homeless people frequently hang in the same areas where a shelter is located, also most homeless people don’t have up to date cell phones with paid for service, so not many people will benefit from your kind gesture, this free shelter ride will end tomorrow, but please understand there will be a ton of people who can’t take advantage of a warm ride to there destination also these destinations don’t always start at a shelter or stop at a shelter.
