From the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
Residents of Pittsburgh’s Bedford Dwellings are getting a lift from Lyft.
The ride-share service on Thursday announced it would transport residents of Bedford and those at Prospect Terrace in East Pittsburgh, both public housing communities, to and from local Giant Eagle grocery stores for $5 per round trip. Residents are eligible for one ride to the store each week.
Caster Binion, executive director of the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh, which owns Bedford, said the service is critical for residents, most of whom own no vehicle and depend on bus transportation for grocery shopping.
“It’s transformative for a community to have access to fresh food and the opportunity to have transportation door-to-door,” he said, adding that the program would help eradicate hunger in public housing. “The entire community benefits.”
