In an email to drivers Friday, Lyft co-founders John Zimmer and Logan Green said, "who would like to help neighbors get to grocery stores workers to hospitals and caretakers to their jobs" can join a new LyftUp Driver Task Force.
Drivers would deliver medical supplies, test kits, meals for kids and seniors in need. These items would be picked up from a distribution center, and dropped of without contact.
The program will start in the Bay Area, but Lyft plans to expand it across the country. They are also teaming up with other companies to provide drivers temporary work opportunities.
Also, in the email the co founders said they would contribute their salaries through the end of June to help support drivers during the coronavirus crisis.
