Uber and Lyft Are Teaming Up to Provide Veterans with Free Rides to Job Interviews

Two of the biggest ride sharing companies are teaming up for a great cause. Uber and Lyft have announced a program launched in conjunction with the White House’s Joining Forces initiative to provide thousands of free rides to veterans headed to job interviews. In a statement, Joining Forces’ executive director explained, “We have heard time and time again that transportation to and from work and job interviews is often a significant hurdle for homeless veterans trying to find work. If a veteran is working a night shift or employed in a remote area of a city, public transportation is not always a viable option, and there is limited funding available for alternative transportation.” As The Military Times notes, there are currently about 50,000 homeless veterans in America, and many do not have access to transportation to get to job interviews.
