Uber, a ride-hailing app, and Lyft, a travel-hiring app, are offering free rides in Chicago’s schools to children under 16, the company said in a statement.
The rides will start Wednesday and run through Dec. 15, Uber said.
“The rides will include free meals and snacks, along with the opportunity to meet other riders during the ride, in order to build a better understanding of each other’s journeys,” Uber said in the statement.
“This program is designed to give students the opportunity and resources to build new friendships, connect on a deeper level, and experience a greater level of shared experiences and experiences they can’t otherwise enjoy.”
Lyft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Busch Gardens rides in Seattle will be free starting next month.
