Lyft Rides Program

Duke University Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) offers a Lyft Rides Program to cover transportation costs for Duke students and employees traveling to and from certain designated locations. The program includes destinations such as Duke Lemur Center, Duke Campus Farm, and Duke Forest Shepherd Nature Trail (students only).

+ Benefits of the Program +

        • Students/staff will not have to pay for their rides. The program uses a Lyft Pass that is billed to a fund code.
        • Departments can set a dollar amount for the rides and the number of rides per student or staff member. Anything over the set amount will be charged to the student or staff member.
        • The program can be used for locations other than the designated locations with additional approval and planning with PTS

        • Participants can pay more out-of-pocket for priority pick-up, but this service is not covered by the program.
