Lyft Announces Partnership With The Trust for Public Land To Create & Protect Parks In Areas Across The Country

Lyft seems increasingly focused on improving society, from inroads to emissions-free ridesharing to bikesharing to other community-oriented, people-oriented, and planet-focused concerns and corporate extensions. One of my favorites was the “ride to vote” offer of 50% off.
Today, Lyft announced a partnership to provide and protect more green spaces in city environments.
“Our work is rooted in making cities more livable by building them around people, not cars. As part of our commitment to cities through Lyft City Works, we’re partnering with The Trust for Public Land (TPL) to create and protect parks in areas where they’re needed most. For nearly 50 years, The Trust for Public Land has completed over five thousand park and conservation projects, and championed social equity and environmental sustainability.”
“For nearly 50 years, The Trust for Public Land has completed over five thousand park and conservation projects, and championed social equity and environmental sustainability. From Chicago and Los Angeles, to Denver and beyond, TPL works directly with communities to ensure everyone in the US has access to a quality park,” the Lyft press release states. “This partnership supports our vision to create vibrant, healthy communities with green investments like Lyft bikes, scooters, electric vehicles, and our carbon offsets program.” Trees are a great way to round out Lyft’s efforts to help clean our air.
“Lyft and The Trust for Public Land share a vision for more parks and fewer parking lots in our communities. As we move toward a more sustainable transportation system, we are excited to partner with Lyft to advance healthy, connected cities,” said Diane Regas, President and CEO of The Trust for Public Land.
