  • How to Schedule

    Schedule your ride with LYFT and use the NDRNVOTE code

  • Additional Information


    Use the code NDRNVOTE for voters with disabilities. (from DRW’s umbrella agency, National Disability Rights Network)

    This code is active now through November 3 and is worth up to a $30 discount in poll rides. Any remaining balance on that $30 carries over to a future ride no later than November 3. It can be used for early voting, dropbox voting, or on Election Day. Voters can all use this same code, but each voter can only use it once.

    This means that a voter will be able to use it for a ride to the polls and a return ride home and will only be responsible for any amount over $30 for those round trip rides.

    At this time, LYFT does not have Wheelchair accessible vehicles in Wisconsin. We are checking on other accessibility needs.
