A message to our riders

As we begin the spring semester, we want to let you know we’re facing significant challenges with staffing. The beginning of the semester will likely be challenging because of this. It is possible that we may have to reduce hours and the wait for a ride may increase.

To best protect our drivers and staff, please wear the best mask possible when you are onboard.

Please be patient with our staff. They are giving their all to provide you with the best possible service. Many issues are out of their control.

IU Ride Late Nite by Lyft is still operating and you can still set up your IU account to receive a discount of $6.50 (excluding tip) off rides in designated areas from 12 – 3 a.m. nightly.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
