In response to higher than expected levels of lead in samples of Newark’s drinking water, residents in the Pequannock service area who have lead service lines can access free Lyft rides to water distribution centers.
Eligible residents can use the code EWRH20 for two rides worth up to $15 to access the following locations:
- Newark Department of Health and Community Wellness, 110 William St.
- Bo Porter Sports Complex, 378 Lyons Ave.
- Boylan Street Recreation Center, 916 S.Orange Ave.
- Vince Lombardi Center, 201 Bloomfield Ave.
Rides are available through Aug. 29. Lyft is offering the service through its Wheels for All program, which mobilizes to make transportation as easy as possible for those in need in times of natural disaster.
