A new agreement between Arizona State University and Lyft, the fastest-growing ride-share company in the U.S., connects campuses and locations in Arizona and beyond.

“Lyft’s 100 percent carbon-neutral rides pair well with ASU sustainability efforts,” said Nichol Luoma, University Business Services associate vice president, Sustainability Operations officer and chief procurement officer. “Offering Lyft as part of the transportation mix advances our goal of zero emissions from transportation by 2035.” 

Lyft helps support ASU’s sustainability objectives by connecting Sun Devils where they live to sustainable alternatives like the bus or light rail.

ASU students, faculty and staff may download the Lyft app, create a Lyft business profile using their ASU email address and get a $15 personal ride credit. The offer is valid within 30 days of signing up. Sun Devils who have already set up a business profile with their ASU email will automatically receive this coupon soon.

“This is just the first step in the Lyft-ASU agreement,” said Melinda Alonzo, ASU Parking and Transit Services director. “Students, faculty and staff can look forward to many more opportunities in the coming months as we work to integrate this service with other university transportation solutions.”

Departments, colleges and schools should contact Parking and Transit Services if they want to sponsor a service for their organization.

In mid-May, the ASU-Mayo Clinic shuttle will be replaced by Lyft rides, and ASU will install marked ride-share pick-up and drop-off points on every campus. Those who participate in programs associated with the ASU-Mayo partnership will receive a code for free rides between the locations.

“This agreement means responsible, convenient, inexpensive travel anywhere Sun Devils are,” said JC Porter, PTS commuter services assistant director.
