Lyft is offering federal employees, who are also drivers for Lyft, a gas card.
Lyft announced that drivers affected by the shutdown could pick up a $20 gas card at Lyft hubs. In Texas, the Lyft hub is located in Austin.
"To enable our community to join in, we’re expanding our partnership with United Way to support their United for U.S. Fund via Round Up & Donate. Donations to this fund support United Way in addressing vital needs, including food, rent and mortgage payments, and other basic expenses for federal workers, contractors and others impacted by the government shutdown," said Lyft.
The Austin hub is located at 1021 E. 7th Street, Suite #102.
